In April, U.S.Geological Survey biologists caught the biggest Burmese python yet seen in Florida, which has become a home to this and other invasive species brought to the state and then abandoned by pet owners. The 17-footer, a female with 84 eggs, was fitted with four different tracking devices and followed for more than a month before it was euthanized.
