An Everglades record: largest female python captured in Big Cypress

17-foot 140-pound female python carrying 73 eggs found in Florida

Officials at Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida just found the largest python ever to be removed from the reserve.

The record setting python is held by a team of four hunters who captured the largest female snake at Big Cypress National Preserve.

A 17-foot-long female python was pulled from Florida's Everglades last week, and was caught after researchers followed the signals of male pythons equipped with radio transmitters, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The 17-foot, 140-pound female snake - an invasive species devastating to native wildlife - was discovered using a new tracking approach that leans on technology and the laws of attraction.

There's no evidence that rhino horn, made of the same substance as human fingernails, actually holds any medicinal value. In total, three men aged between 26 and 35 were arrested and two.375 hunting rifles and ammunition were seized.

"The team not only removes the invasive snakes, but collects data for research, develops new removal tools and learns how the pythons are using the Preserve".

The males then lead researchers to breeding grounds, where they usually find females.

In December, a huge 18-foot-long python weighing 150 pounds was caught roaming in the Everglades. Pythons are native to Southeast Asia, Africa and Central and South America.

In 2017, two renowned snake catchers from India's mountain-dwelling Irula tribe bagged only 33 pythons after chanting across the Everglades for two months.

Additionally, the villains are called The Calypso Twins who run a cult full of psychopaths. As is the standard these days, Borderlands 3 will have a few different editions.

Python hunters are said to have caught more than 1,850 of the snakes in the area after they started to wreak havoc on Florida's ecosystem.

While pythons of all sizes have been found in the Everglades, a lot of them are between 6 and 10 feet long.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission allows for Burmese pythons to be killed without a permit or hunting license.
