Snake's 'boyfriend’ leads hunters to largest python in Florida Everglades

An Everglades record: largest female python captured in Big Cypress

Officials say this is the largest python ever removed from Big Cypress National Preserve and was caught using radio transmitters.

The team said they caught the snake by tracking a "boyfriend" male snake that had been fitted with a radio transmitter.

Big Cypress posted a photo on Facebook showing four people holding the snake from its head to its tail.

Researchers at Big Cypress National Preserve found what they describe as the biggest python they've ever seen there according WUSA9.

Most illegal activity occurs in Kruger National Park , which sits on South Africa's north-eastern border with Mozambique. In total, three men aged between 26 and 35 were arrested and two.375 hunting rifles and ammunition were seized.


The story said the snake was removed from the park but did not specify what researchers did with it.

She was captured after officials said pythons had to be rounded-up to stop their numbers getting out of control.

Agencies responsible for managing the Everglades stage regular public python hunts and previous year recorded their 1,000th kill, by a hunter who bagged more than 100.

Burmese pythons pose "significant threats" to the native wildlife in the preserve, located about 125 kilometres west of Miami, in south Florida.

In December, a huge 18-foot-long python weighing 150 pounds was caught roaming in the Everglades.

The python had 73 developing eggs.

"The Resource Management staff would like to thank all of the Preserve divisions that have supported the python program", Big Cypress National Preserve said in the Facebook post. Their support, along with the tireless efforts of our partners at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), have allowed us to locate and remove several breeding female pythons over the past few months.
