Python Swallows Deer Larger Than Itself

Another Florida Python has been found with the body of a whole deer inside it’s stomach!  It’s not the first python found with such large prey inside, but it is the smallest in length to accomplish such a feat!  Actually the fawn deer weighed 35 pounds while the python weighed in at 31-1/2 pounds and was just over 11 feet long. Florida wildlife officials were surprised that such a relatively small python could swallow such large prey! The python is an invasive species in Florida and recently has been know to dine on peoples pets (cats and dogs!)  Lizards, alligators, rattlesnakes, and pythons can be a menace to anyone living in or visiting the Sunshine State!
