A female python which was weighing 140 pounds and was 17 feet length, making it the largest snake ever to be caught in Big Cypress National preserve, was captured in Florida Everglades.

Big Cypress says its team is not only removing the invasive snakes, but collecting research data, developing new removal tools and learning how the pythons are using the Preserve.

According to CNN, the Burmese python, native to Southeast Asia, started appearing in the Florida Everglades - a hot, humid habitat ideal for the foreign species - in the 1980s. Pet owners either release them on goal when they get too big, or by accident when hurricanes sweep through the state.

Since then, the python has disrupted the natural ecosystem of predator and prey in the Everglades, competing with native wildlife for food and contributing to the decline in several mammal species. The searchers found only 68 snakes. In 2013, over 1,600 people registered to hunt the snakes as part of the Python Challenge, organized by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
