A group of python hunters in Florida have just made the record books with the gigantic snake they recently captured.  It’s been officially dubbed the longest python ever caught in the state of Florida.

According to reports, a group of python hunters captured a Burmese python that measured in at 19 feet in length and weighed 125 lbs.


Glades Boys are official world record holders!! Measuring in at 19 feet, this monster is the longest Burmese Python on record. Captured in Collier County at about 1:00am on 7/10/23. Burmese Pythons are invasive to the Florida Everglades and are destroying the ecosystem. Wanna help us save the native wildlife and go on an unforgettable adventure?

The snake was likely around 20 years old and put up a big fight with the hunters.  When the net didn’t work to capture the huge reptile one of the hunters jumped on it and tried to capture it.  The snake fought back!

The hunters had to fight the snake off of them as it tried to wrap them up and strangle them to survive.

The group were officially given the World Record for the first 19 foot Burmese python and the longest ever caught in Florida.
