(WHAS 11)--A family got quite the shock when an uninvited guest showed up in a Florida picnic area.
Check out this 17-foot-long Burmese python! The snake was quickly killed by a park ranger.
Officials say pythons have devastated rabbit, fox, and bobcat populations so much that they've planned an event to help control the snakes' expanding population.
Next month there's going to be a python challenge where prizes will be awarded to the person who kills the most pythons.
