Video: Seventeen-foot Python slithers into picnic area

 

Everglades National Park, FL - A family got quite a shock when an uninvited guest slithered into a picnic area in Florida. 

They were visiting from Arkansas and captured this snake on camera.

This 17-foot Burmese python was killed by a park ranger. 

In January, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host a 2013 Python Challenge

They hope this will help control the expanding population. 
A grand prize of $1,500 will go to the person who kills the most pythons and a thousand dollars will go to the person who kills the longest python. 

Researchers say pythons have devastated rabbit, fox, opossum and bobcat populations.
