I just did an Everglades boat tour with the family and never realized how bad the snake problem is here in South Florida. In an effort to help get rid of these invasive creatures they created the Florida Python Challenge. This is a state-organized event where participants are encouraged to find and destroy Burmese pythons.

A total of 223 Burmese pythons have been hunted as part of a Florida snake removal challenge, including one that was almost 16 feet long.

The top prize of $10,000 was awarded to retired law enforcement officer Charlie Dachton, who had the help of his son Chance Dalton.
