Giant Python Digesting a Deer Captured and Killed in West Miami-Dade
It may not be as amazing/disgusting as that legendary snake-exploding-while-eating-an-alligator photo (which we are now lobbying to be adapted as the official state seal), but officials have found another invasive snake in the Everglades that had just made a meal out of a rather large native species.

The beast was discovered in western Dade County by contractors working for the South Florida Water Management District.
