The Burmese Python is one of the six largest snakes in the world, native to a large variation of tropic and subtropic areas of Southern- and Southeast Asia
Imagine walking into your shed on a balmy Florida afternoon and discovering an enormous snake eating a cat's skull. Sounds like the opening scene for SyFy's next disaster movie right? WRONG! This is a real story with a real 100 lbs. snake. Ok, now that you are genuinely shocked, let's discuss what happened.

A 14-foot Burmese python was found by a man while he was performing home repairs in Hialeah, Florida. Officials immediately responded to the home and when they entered the shed to assess the snake situation the python was eating a cat's skull. The Miami-Dade Venom Unit also discovered that there was a large amount of molted skin in the shed, leading them to the conclusion that the massive snake had made the shed his makeshift home. "It was very nicely holed up in a shed, it's been there a while," Lt. Lisa Wood, of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Venom Unit, said of the reptile.The discovered python had also solved the mystery of why there had been a large number of disappearances of local cats and rabbits. "Speaking with the neighbors, apparently there's a couple of rabbits and a cat missing from the neighborhood recently so the snake may be to blame for that," Wood added.

Although officials now had a new mystery on their hands, how exactly did this 14-foot snake make its way into a shed? The Miami-Dade Venom Unit suspected that the python was a pet who ever escaped from his home or was abandoned after the snake had grown too large. According to CBS, it is illegal to own or sell pythons in Florida, and it is against federal law to import the snakes or sell them across state lines.

Video crews captured officials attempting to work out the safest way to detain the python and remove the massive animal from the shed. The unit eventually removed the door of the shed to expose the body of the python, they then pulled the snake back, passing through many people's hands before they took hold of the animal's head to ensure safety. The unit then placed the massive white and yellow snake into bag for traveling.

What would you do if you encountered a 14-foot Burmese python? I would probably faint, then cry, then faint again.
