EVERGLADES, Fla. -- Remember the giant python found in the Everglades last week?
It had a giant bulge indicating it had recently eaten.
GRAPHIC: THESE PICTURES SHOW WHAT THE SNAKE ATE.
The non-native Burmese python was found by workers in the park to control vegetation on Oct. 28.
Because it is a non-native species, most likely a pet that was released into the wild, the species is considered a pest that has no natural enemies in the Everglades.
Although they usually feed on smaller creatures like rodents or birds, as the pictures show, this 16-foot snake has a head the size of an adult human hand, and it was able to open wide enough to consume a 76-pound deer, whole.
