A giant 17 feet and 7 inches (5.3m) Burmese python carrying 87 eggs discovered at the Everglades National Park in Florida. It is the largest snake ever of its kind found in the state. “This thing is monstrous, it's about a foot wide,” the Yahoo! News quoted Kenneth Krysko from the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida as saying. “It means these snakes are surviving a long time in the wild, there's nothing stopping them and the native wildlife are in trouble,” he added.
The 164.5-pound female python had been kept in a freezer at the museam since May. The researchers at the museum studied its internal anatomy on last Friday. The scientists’ team discovered 14 Burmese python in a single day. Researchers now worry that the snakes may cause danger to human lives in near future.
