JUST IN VIDEO: Florida’s lieutenant governor digs up massive Everglades python

Florida’s lieutenant governor isn’t above getting down and dirty to take down an invasive snake.

Last  month, Carlos Lopez-Cantera helped nab a 15-foot-4-inch Burmese python with the help of Tom Rahill, a member of Florida’s Swamp Apes.

Watch: Python vs. alligator in epic battle for survival.

Rahill is one of 25 hunters paid by the South Florida Water Management District to try and cull the python invasion in the Everglades.

There are estimated to be tens of thousands of pythons in the Everglades, eating everything from deer and alligators to small mammals. District officials don’t expect to eradicate the python with their hunt, but half of the kills have been of females, and many of them were carrying dozens of eggs.
