Leon is a python hunter who recently killed a 17-foot, 1-inch Burmese python, coming in at about 132 pounds, at the Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida.

The SFWMD started the python program in April 2017 and pays hunters $8.10 an hour.

Since the program's initiation in March, more than 730 pythons have been removed from the Everglades.

The invasive Burmese python was first brought to the Sunshine State as a pet, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

He described it as being able to "kill any full-grown man".

According to Fox News, Leon also holds the record for the largest python ever caught in the entire state: he captured an 18 foot, eight inch python in 2013.

A veteran python hunter from Florida has snagged a record 17-foot snake. 'There's no natural predators too'. The Miami Herald reports the snakes are in part to blame for diminishing the population of small mammals, including marsh rabbits and raccoons. They also pay an extra $50 for a 4-foot-long snake and $25 for each additional foot above that.

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

Florida snake hunters made a monster catch in the Everglades over the weekend. "At least if you don't have somebody else with you". WSVN reported the 16 foot, 11 inch python on November 2.
