Here is a story on the largest Python ever taken in Florida to date!


Highly likely it was native born.

I have read that they are born around 20 inches and grow to 6 feet in 6 months.
UF did some studies back around 2008 and they found it was a fast path to 10ft if food was not restricted. The data says also that after 10ft (30 months) that they grow about 7 pounds per year.

My guess that snake was 4-7 years old and at full maturity.

Just gotta wonder what it has eaten in that time and how many like it are still out there. Think of the eggs that bitch has laid and she had strong genetics obviously.
