Florida Python Hunter Battles 17 Foot Snake

 

Nothing scarier than going to the hot Florida everglades alone to hunt giant serpents who pretty much kill everything in their path. That’s what python hunger Mike Kimmel was facing when he went toe to toe with a 17-foot python in the Everglades.

When Mike found the monster snake he underestimated its reach and took a risk by grabbing its tail instead of its head. The snake was able to turn and bite him just above the elbow. He was very worried about bleeding out and losing consciousness. He was able to finally stop the bleeding and win the battle.

Florida gives out licenses to people who can hunt these invasive reptiles who have no natural predator in the waters of Florida. They destroy and kill everything in their path. Officials are trying to eradicate the reptile and every year, hunters from around the world head out to catch these massive snakes.
