EVERGLADES, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – Pythons are relentless eating machines that have been wreaking havoc on Florida’s ecosystem.

“They’ve eaten-up the marsh rabbits, the small mice and stuff, and everything that normally eats them is impacted because they can’t. The food chain is not there anymore,” said John Hammond, a Florida wildlife trapper.

Hammond caught a 150-pound python in the Florida Everglades over the weekend, and she is a record holder. Hammond captured the snake as part of the Python Elimination Program.

Workers with Florida Fish and Wildlife euthanized the 18-foot long python, the largest snake that has been taken since the program has been in effect.
