  • Florida Python 1

A veteran Florida python hunter last weekend snagged a record 17-foot snake, a behemoth so vast he said it could "kill any full-grown man".

"After finding the 17'1" (5.2 m) python submerged in water at around 2:45 Friday morning, Jason Leon managed to pull the 132-lbs.

The South Florida Water Management District shared video of the colossal python on Monday after it was caught Friday by hunter Jason Leon. He described it as being able to "kill any full-grown man".

The 17-foot, 1-inch python, weighing 132 pounds, is the longest ever brought in for the agency's Python Elimination Program.

The massive python was the biggest so far in the district hunt established as a way to to raise the profile of the spread of the invasive species.

Leon still holds the 2013 state record for a python he captured that was 18 feet, 8 inches, according to SFWMD.

The snakes were captured on state land in Miami-Dade, Broward and Collier counties. The snake was found in the company of a small male snake.

The hunters are paid $8.10 per hour for the hunt, plus a bounty for each snake caught. They also pay an extra $50 for a 4-foot-long snake and $25 for each additional foot above that. So in total, the snake was worth $375.
