A large python and her eggs, some of which hatched when a professional arrived, were found under a home in the everglades.
What do you do when you see a giant python in your backyard? You call for help.
During 4th of July weekend, a 16-foot, 165 pound reptile was found under a home in the Everglades along with its 50 eggs, NBC Miami reported.
According to the report, the home was about four miles south of “Alligator Alley” in Broward County, Fla. The python and her eggs, some of which hatched when a professional showed up, were removed from under the home.
Pythons are a deadly species and are a threat to wildlife such as deer, alligators and raccoons.
“With good fortune, we were able to find a large female, and remove her and an entire nest of up to 50 baby snakes, which would have continued killing off our precious habitat,” said Ron Bergeron, an Everglades conservationist.
