EVERGLADES, Fla. — A trapper is showing off a massive catch.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission posted on Facebook Tuesday that an 18-foot Burmese python was caught in the Everglades.

A trapper captured the snake in the Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area.

FWC said that during cooler months, people are more likely to see pythons during the day.
