BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers responded to a call from a citizen about a 9-plus foot green anaconda near State Road 50 at the St. Johns River, near the Brevard and Orange county line.

“Thanks to the quick reporting by the caller, the officers were able to euthanize the nonnative constrictor before it could escape into the water,” said FWC officials via Facebook.

“This incident shows how important it is to report sightings of nonnative wildlife including constrictor snakes like this one.”
