Officials in south Florida were in for a surprise last week when they cut open the belly of a 16-foot Burmese python they had captured and killed in the Everglades.
Inside the reptile they found a 76-pound, fully intact deer, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
According to the South Florida Water Management District, the snake, which was a female, weighed 215.4 pounds with the deer, and 139.1 pounds without it. The girth of the snake's stomach, stretched to accomodate the carcass, measured a whopping 44.1-inches. From head to tail, the reptile measured 15.65 feet.
