Florida Sets Records With Capture Of Five Longest Burmese Pythons

In the world of sports, there’s a saying that’s widely used: Records are meant to be broken.

However, what about in the realm of Burmese Pythons? Which records are the heaviest and longest? Who is monitoring this? What size invasive snakes should ambitious hunters be aiming for in order to get their names on the trophy python scoreboard?

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the state’s foremost authority on python management, was consulted by the News-Press and Naples Daily News.

Lisa Thompson, the FWC representative for the Division of Species Conservation, states that while not all Burmese pythons may be reported, “we keep records of pythons that were reported to us.”
