Florida snake hunters captured a monstrous 132-pound Burmese python in the Everglades on Friday

"If that snake was alive right now, it would probably take like three of us to be able to control that snake", python hunter Jason Leon told NBC Miami.

Leon says the Burmese python is causing serious problems for the Everglades.

But since the 1980s, released snakes and their offspring have preyed on mammals, birds and reptiles native to Florida.

It's so far the largest snake to be caught under the South Florida Water Management District's python elimination program.

For this python, Leon and the two other hunters will reportedly get $375.

He grabbed the snake and quickly shot her in the head, killing her instantly. "That snake could pretty much kill any full-grown man". 'There's no natural predators too'. Another python - a smaller male - was also nearby but was not caught.

WTSP reported that the previous record was held by famed python hunter Dusty "Wildman" Crum, who brought in a 16-foot, 11-inch python that weighed 122 pounds in November.

The Miami Herakld reports that the snake hunter also helped catch the python elimination program's 500th specimen back in August.

Burmese pythons, one of the largest snake species on earth, are breeding in the park and spreading throughout south Florida. WSVN reported the 16 foot, 11 inch python on November 2.
