A python hunter reeled in a colossal catch in the Florid Everglades.
Dusty “The Wildman” Crum slithered his way toward a 16-foot, 10-inch python and managed to successfully wrestle it.
Footage shows the wild capture as Crum snuck up on the snake barefoot and tackled it with his bare hands. Crum said the catch was the biggest snake he’s ever caught.
In the video, Crum presumes the snake was pregnant and perhaps injured by another animal. He works with the South Florida Water Management District’s python elimination program.
