A 16-foot-long Burmese python was found to have a whole adult deer in its stomach after it was captured and killed in a U.S. national park.

The reptile - one of the biggest ever found in South Florida - had recently swallowed a doe the size of a small child.

Skip Snow, a python specialist who conducted the autopsy at Everglades National Park, said the animal had a girth of 44ins with the 5st 6lb deer inside its stomach.

I know I know it sucks, life is precious and all, but Burmese pythons aren't exactly native to Florida and sensitive ecosystems can go to hell pretty quickly if a foreign element is introduced. Sucks? Yes it does, but people should think more than twice before getting exotic pets they're not that interested in taking care of whip.gif

Yup an invasive species can throw things out of whack in such a short period of time, it's quite frightening. On a side note, you got me thinking Daj... I miss gator tail! That's harder to get than Sunday mail round these parts.

For starters, 76 pounds is not an adult deer unless it is a Key deer. I don't think there are too many Key deer in the 'Glades.

Second, pythons are more than an invasive species in the Everglades. Their population has exploded down there and it will only get worse as the Everglades are the perfect breeding environment for them and they have no natural predators there.

Third pythons get much bigger than 16 feet. I remember a 23 footer being pulled from under a s Florida home. Scientists believe it is quite probable that there are already "super snakes" in the 'Glades.

These snakes are getting closer and closer to residential areas and even going into neighborhoods to eat pets.

Children play there...

I think they should kill every python they see. The iguana and tilapia infestations are just a hint of what the python problem will become.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
