In Florida the largest Burmese python ever caught has been found in Everglades National Park. The snake is more than 17 feet long and weighs over 164 pounds: Snake expert Dr. Kenneth Krysko: “We found that the Burmese python had eaten at least one bird, which we will have identified. And we also found that it contained 87 oviducal eggs. So 87 eggs that were in the oviducts which would now beat the record in Florida by two.” Although Burmese pythons are native to Southeast Asia they have established a population of tens of thousands in the Everglades. Part of the blame for the large numbers has been placed on people who keep them as pets and then let them go into the wild. US Authorities have banned the import of Burmese pythons and it is also legal to hunt them, but little progress has been made on reducing their numbers.
