Researchers Capture 43 Pythons Weighing More Than 1 Ton in Florida

Following the monthlong Burmese Python removal competition designed to remove as many of the snakes from the Everglades as possible, there still remains an inordinate amount of pythons. Researchers who have been tracking Burmese pythons captured more than one ton over the last three months in southwest Florida.

Among the 43 pythons removed, researchers found the largest male python ever documented in south Florida, measuring 16 feet and weighing more than 140 pounds.
