In the Florida Everglades national park, researchers recaptured what is now the biggest snake ever caught in America. The huge Burmese python was 17 feet 7 inches long and weight exactly 164.5 pounds.
They originally caught the snake and put tracers on it earlier this year. They re caught it and killed it so they can study more about these Burmese pythons and what they are doing in the area.
Massive Python found in Florida
The snake had 87 eggs inside of it, which also broke a US record for most eggs by 2, as the previous record was 85. This makes me sad that they are killing snakes but at the same time I can understand how there is a mass over population of these Burmese pythons in the Everglades region and they are killing all of the animals as a report stated a 90% drop in the small mammal population. That’s pretty crazy!
So what do you guys think… should they kill all of these snakes or is there another way?
