New York Post – A Burmese python was found underneath the hood of a Ford Mustang in Florida, authorities announced Thursday.

The 10-foot snake was captured by officers from Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission without any reports of injuries in the city of Dania Beach, the agency wrote on Facebook.

Burmese pythons, which are not native to Florida, prey on native mammals, reptiles and birds in the southern part of the state, FWC said.

Wild-caught pythons are not protected under Florida law and are allowed — and even encouraged — to be killed, the agency said. Source.
