The team from the Big Cypress National Preserve posted news of their record-setting catch in a Facebook post that also noted the giant reptile was carrying 73 eggs. The picture posted on their Facebook page shows it took four people to hold up the behemoth!

The team said they caught the snake by tracking a "boyfriend" male snake that had been fitted with a radio transmitter.

"Once they do locate the female, the distance they travel in a day will be severely reduced".

Researchers have captured what they are calling the largest python to ever be removed from the Big Cypress National Preserve.

South Florida Water Management District said the snake catcher captured a 17-foot, 5-inch (5.3-metre) female Burmese python, which weighed in at 120 pounds.

The pythons pose significant threats to native wildlife.

Apple to Launch Three OLED iPhones in 2020
According to a report from DigiTimes , Apple's taken notice and is planning to release a 5.4-inch phone in 2020 . Apparently, the Cupertino-based tech company will launch three OLED-based new iPhone devices in 2020 .

Most of the pythons that have been found in the Everglades are between 6 and 10 feet long - with the largest one measured at over 18 feet long and weighing more than 100 pounds, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The snakes were banned from importation for the pet trade in 2012, but the US Geological Survey website says tens of thousands of pythons are estimated to be present in the Everglades.

A record-breaking snake has been caught and removed from a national park in America.

As well as removing invasive snakes, Big Cypress said it uses each discovery to collect data for research, develop new removal tools and learn how pythons are using the area.

Last month, the battle against the invasive Burmese python in the Everglades reached a major milestone with the removal of the 2,000th python.
