16' Python + 50 Eggs

Post by kwanjangnihm »

A 16-foot Burmese python and over 50 eggs were removed from under a house in the Florida Everglades during the holiday weekend.

The female python, weighing about 165 pounds, was removed by Ron Bergeron, an Everglades conservationist. The python was one foot away from becoming the largest on record.

The python’s nest was lodged within the outdoor structure underneath a home. Some of the eggs hatched upon the conservationist's arrival.

Two men at an island camp in the Everglades called Bergeron after seeing the python. Bergeron went to the scene of the sighting, about four miles south of Alligator Alley in Broward County.
He'll cut your throat, baby, stick you in the back, drive off in your Cadillac.
He's more trouble than you think, he'll kill your sugar, leave you in the drink.

Florida Python Milestone: 500th Caught by Wildlife Agents

BROWARD COUNTY -- It's a milestone for those working to control an invasive snake that's devastating wildlife in the Everglades.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says its Python Action Team has removed its 500thinvasive Burmese python from the wild.


FWC says the snake captured early Tuesday morning at Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area was a female... almost 10 feet long... and weighed almost 21 pounds.

“Thanks to the hard-working men and women of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, hundreds of invasive Burmese pythons have been removed from the Everglades and our ecosystem,” said Governor Ron DeSantis.

Members of the Python Action Team are paid for surveying and, when possible, capturing Burmese pythons. They also respond to calls on the Exotic Species Hotline (888-IVEGOT1) to make sure any recently released reptiles don't get established in new area. The FWC has an Exotic Pet Amnesty Program that allows nonnative pets to be surrendered without penalty.
