16 feet long Burmese Python removed from Everglades

Miami-Dade County, Florida – As a part of the 2021 Python challenge, six people removed an extremely large Burmese Python from the Florida Everglades on Saturday night.

Kevin Carlisle and his son Luke of Jacksonville provided the photos of the massive snake, which they said measured close to 16 feet long.

The conservation effort aims to remove the invasive snakes to help protect the Everglades.

Carlisle and Dusty Crum are Python contractors with the South Florida Water Management District.

Carlisle and Crum were helped by SFWMD assistants Ed Musgrave, his teen nephews Andrew and Jacob, and Luke Carlisle, 11.

Last year’s longest capture was a 12-foot python with 80 snakes removed in total.
