What's Hot: Largest python ever found in Florida is 18 feet long and weighs over 200 pounds
The largest Burmese python ever seen in Florida has been captured in the Everglades, according to National Geographic.
Florida researchers found the nearly 18-foot long, 215 pound female python, the largest ever found outside its native habitat.
Pythons are not native to Florida and usually grow between 6 and 10 feet but in Southeast Asia they commonly reach 18 to 20 feet long.
After euthanizing the female snake, researchers found bits of fur, clumps of dissolved bone and a chunk of a hoof, evidence that the python's last meal was an adult white-tailed deer.
