82 and counting.

That's the number so far of Burmese pythons removed from public lands in Florida during the 2016 Python Challenge.

There are still 13 days left in the competition.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the invasive snakes pose a threat to the native wildlife and eco-system.
