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