A Burmese python — more than 17 feet long and weighing more than 130 pounds, with more rows of sharp teeth than you ever cared to imagine — has been captured and killed in the Florida Everglades. In a video from the South Florida Water Management District, he said he “got her out, shot her right in the head while I was holding her.”“I grabbed her first by the centre of the body. She had her head over wrapped around by the tree and I was able to go ahead and grab her farther up by the head. “That snake could pretty much kill any full-grown man,” he told the news station about the serpent. The South Florida Water Management District says on its website that the Burmese python was likely introduced to the Florida Everglades “by accidental or intentional releases by pet owners.”I grabbed her first by the centre of the body.
