A python hunter has reeled in a colossal catch in the Florida Everglades, and his wrestle with the huge snake was caught on camera. But the incentives start at $50 for a four-foot long snake and $25 for each additional foot above. "Whoo! Sixteen-10, baby! Man, that's a big one!" In fact, it was the biggest snake captured during this current python eradication project conducted by the South Florida Water Management District.

Inside the python, they found 78 eggs, or 78 pythons that will not be terrorizing the wildlife in South Florida, according to Chron. "Biggest snake I ever caught in my life right there", Crum said. The local record was a snake measuring 18 feet, two inches and weighing 160.

"We're making a difference by taking the eggs out of the ecosystem", Crum said. This is serious business, with thousands upon thousands of these pythons in the Everglades.
