Wildlife officials in Florida removed 5,000 Burmese pythons from the Everglades, a nonnative pest that reproduces -- and kills other species -- so frequently that the state takes extraordinary measures to combat them.
Researchers in Florida say they have found an 11-foot-long invasive Burmese python that had consumed a deer that weighed more than the snake.
Police say one of two snakes found abandoned outside a pet store just north of Toronto has died.
Florida wildlife officials say 106 Burmese pythons were caught during a state-sanctioned hunt for the invasive snakes.
The biggest Burmese python ever caught in Florida -- 17 feet, 7 inches long and 164 1/2 pounds -- was found in Everglades National Park, the University of Florida announced Monday.
