A record 5.2m python has been captured in a national park in Florida.

The female snake, the largest ever to be removed from Big Cypress National Preserve, weighed 63.5kg and was carrying 73 developing eggs.

Pythons pose a major threat to native wildlife in the state.

The Burmese python has been considered an invasive species since it was first spotted in Florida’s Everglades in the 1980s.

The species is native to Asia but some pythons are believed to have been released into the wild in Florida as overgrown pets, while others escaped from a breeding facility destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

Tens of thousands of Burmese pythons are currently estimated to be living in Florida’s Everglades.
