Massive pregnant python caught using new approach

Biggest python ever found

"The team tracked one of the sentinel males with the transmitter and found this massive female nearby", a social media post about the removal says.

A picture of the female python, where she was being held by a team of four, was shared on the official Facebook page of the national preserve.

Scientists have caught a female python in the USA state of Florida that was more than 17-feet-long, weighed 140 pounds and contained 73 developing eggs, the media reported.

Florida, a state known for big news, just discovered a giant snake.

Researchers at the national preserve said the female Burmese python was more than 17 feet long and was carrying 73 developing eggs.

State wildlife officials estimate there are as many as 100,000 pythons living in the vast swamps outside Miami.

The "new approach" that led to the capture of this enormous python involves outfitting male pythons with radio transmitters. The climate and the swamps outside of Miami provide the pythons with the flawless habitat to thrive. "The team not only removes the invasive snakes, but collects data for research, develop new removal tools, and learn how the pythons are using the Preserve", they wrote in a Facebook post.

This latest find was possible after the Big Cypress' rangers used new tracking technology.

As the species poses grave threat to wildlife, Big Cypress is taking necessary measures to control their population.

In a first, scientists have captured a female python that was more than 17-feet-long.

The snakes began turning up in the Everglades in the 1980s, most likely abandoned by pet owners when the reptiles got too large to handle.
