A 12-foot family pet python escaped its glass container during the night and strangled a 2-year-old girl. The owner stabbed the snake but the snake escaped. The 2-year-old was pronounced dead when paramedics arrived at 10 a.m.
A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissioner noted that the pythons could grow to 10 to 12 feet in length and when they grow, sometimes, owners release them into the wild where they find comfort in the Everglades in Florida.
There has been record of a python that tried to digest an alligator but exploded due to the mass of its victim.
