An 18-foot Burmese python was captured in the Everglades this week, andwildlife officials say it's one of the bigger ones they've seen.
Python specialist Bobby Hill, who is with the South Florida Water ManagementDistrict, snagged the snake. It will be examined by University of Floridabiologists.
18-feet mark is long, but it's not record-breaking. That honor belongs toanother snake.
It was captured last year and measured 8-inches longer – which is thebiggest ever found in Florida.
In the wild in their native home of Southeast Asia, the snakes can reachnearly 20-feet.
