Burmese pythons are large constrictor snakes that can grow to 8 m (26 ft.) in length. They are native to India, China, the Malay Peninsula, and some islands of the East Indies. Burmese pythons have been reported in extreme south Florida since the 1980s, and an established population is now located mainly within the bounds of Everglades National Park. Juvenile Burmese pythons and python eggs are eaten by a variety of animals, but when the snakes reach lengths of over 8 feet they become a top predator.
Pythons can be humanely euthanized on private lands at any time with landowner permission - no permit required- and the FWC encourages people to remove pythons from private lands whenever possible.
