A 17-foot python snaked his way into a family picnic in Florida. They were visiting from Arkansas and actually had the presence of mind to break out their camera and film the incident for posterity.

For some reason the huge Burmese was promptly killed by a park ranger. I hoped they had provisions for relocating the beasts instead of having to kill them. It’s a shame because a lot of times these are pets that people have at some point released into the wild.

Well I guess it could’ve been worse, it could’ve been ants.
