A man in Miami is responsible for capturing and killing the largest Burmese python ever recorded in Florida. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the record-breaking serpent was a 128-pound female that measured 18-feet-and-eight-inches in length, shattering the previous record of 17-feet-and-seven-inches. Apparently, Miami resident Jason Leon was driving in a rural area of Miami-Dade County earlier this month when he and a passenger spotted the giant reptile in the roadside brush. After getting help from his buddies, Leon killed the snake with a knife.
