The Florida Everglades has produced yet another monster Burmese python — the second 18-footer captured in the last year.

Bobby Hill, a python control agent for the South Florida Water Management District, bagged the giant female around noon Tuesday on the L-28 levee about five miles north of Tamiami Trail.

District spokesman Randy Smith said the carcass would be shipped to the University of Florida where biologists working to stop the spread of the invasive species will examine the remains and verify its length and weight.
