FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – A veteran Florida python hunter last weekend snagged a record 17-foot snake, a behemoth so immense he said it could “kill any full-grown man.”

The South Florida Water Management District said Monday python hunter Jason Leon broke the agency’s old record with his kill of a Burmese python in southern Miami-Dade County at around 2:45 a.m. Friday.

“That snake could pretty much kill any full-grown man,” Leon told NBC6. “If that snake was alive right now it would probably take like three of us to be able to control that snake.”

The 17-foot, 1-inch python, weighing 132 pounds, is the longest ever brought in for the agency’s Python Elimination Program. Leon also holds the overall state record with an 18-foot-8-inch python he caught in 2013.
