A Florida water management crew got quite a surprise on the job this week.

They stumbled upon an 18-foot, 150-pound python near the Everglades

They called in the agency's python coordinator who shot and killed the snake.

Despite this snake's size, it is not the largest on record in Florida.

That distinction goes to an 18-foot, 8-inch python found last year.
