This is a 16-foot Burmese python found in the Florida everglades that had recently eaten an 80-pound deer before being discovered and killed by the good ol' boys in the picture. The Burmese python is a non-native (it's name was a hint!) invasive species in Florida originally established by pet owners releasing their too-large snakes into the wild. Now? Now they're out there eating Bambi. No word what the snake thought the deer tasted like, but my guess is like anything else: like something that didn't want to be eaten. I guarantee if you could ask food if it was cool with you eating it, 9 times out of 10 it would say no. The other 1 time out of 10 you'd be talking to magic mushrooms and they'd be talking in rainbows and practically begging you to eat them.
Hit the jump for a close up of the snake's Bambi bump and mangled-ass head.
