According to CBS Miami…

It’s the third caught as part of the program that measured more than 17 feet.

With the record catch, SFWMD’s python hunters have now eliminated 1,859 of the invasive snakes on District lands, stretching a combined length of more than two miles and collectively weighing more than 11 tons

1,859 SNAKES?! THE THIRD ONE THAT’S MEASURED MORE THAN 17 FEET?! HOW DO PEOPLE LIVE DOWN THERE?!

And in case that isn’t enough of a reason for you to get with me on this whole revoking Florida’s state status thing, take a look at this 7-foot, 150 pound monitor lizard that was spotted several times bumping around a neighborhood in Davie, Florida over the last couple of months.

Yeah, you’re outta here, Florida.
