(WHDH) — Wildlife officials in Florida recently caught a nearly 18-foot-long Burmese python.

Python Action team member Kevin Reich removed the 17-foot, 9-inch python from the wild.

This marked the second-largest snake ever removed by Florida Fish and Wildlife.

The team has been working to control the number of invasive snakes in the state.
