The biggest Burmese python ever caught in Florida is 17 feet, 7 inches long and weighs 164 and a half pounds.

The Burmese python caught and euthenised earlier this year.

At the Florida Museum of Natural History scientists did an autopsy Monday.

As it turns out, it was pregnant with 87 eggs, also said to be a record.

The pythons were pets...relased into the wild when they got too big.

In and around Everglades National Park alone, some 18-hundred pythons were found between 2000 and 2011.

Kind of puts the Asian Carp in perspective as far as invasive species go.
