Dusty "The Wildman" Crum, who is an orchid-grower by trade, has been working on the SFWMD project in his spare time to earn extra money. The biggest snake to be officially captured and recorded was an 18-foot, 10-inch beast that weighed 160 pounds.

Crum's catch marks the 79th python that has been captured in the water district since the program started in March, according to the water management district.

"Whoo! 16-10, baby! Man that's a big one!"

"It is like Andre the Giant vs. Hulk Hogan, Wrestlemania", Crum said.

A Florida python hunter, working on a python eradication project commissioned by the South Florida Water Management District, caught the largest snake the current project has seen to date, measuring up at nearly 17 feet long.

After the snake was caught, officials extracted 78 eggs from it.

A snake hunter in South Florida showed off his catch of the day - a 16-foot python.

An 8-foot python would pay out $150. "Biggest snake I ever caught in my life right there", he said. Crum's massive python netted him $375 from the water district - about the same selling the skin.

"Well we are making the difference by taking the eggs out of the eco system". Burmese pythons, which are capable of laying 50 to 100 eggs each, have been offloaded into the Everglades by unsatisfied pet owners for decades, says the FWC.
