Pythons are a part of living in Southwest Florida and the Florida Everglades. They show up in people’s garages and swimming pools. In addition, they are destroying parts of the eco system of the Everglades because they have become so invasive. You can obtain a license and hunt them in Florida and every year the state hosts a competition. The competition might be over but the hunting continues. Check out these unbelievable Florida Python hunting videos for TikTok Tuesday.

The annual Python Challenge takes place every September with $10,000 up for grabs. People come to the Sunshine State from all over the world to participate. However, you can obtain a license from the state to hunt year round. You have to dispose of the snakes humanly. Some hunters take their skins and have made some really interesting clothing, jewelry and accessories from them.

Florida Python Hunting Videos

During this year’s Python Challenge my TikTok feed was full of snake videos. I just kept scrolling. They can be a little intense sometimes.  I’m not sure why I stopped on them over the weekend. Perhaps it is because I’m on a fund raising committee for an upcoming event where python hunting is one of the auction items. I’ve seen these auction lots go for big bucks.

Warning, if you are squeamish when it comes to reptiles, this might make your skin crawl. But then again, it’s hard not to look. All of these videos are office friendly, no curse words that I heard. I would for sure be screaming them if I encountered one of these monsters outside of a controlled environment. You don’t have to have a TikTok account to view the videos. Just scroll down and hit play from this post. Check out these unbelievable Florida Python hunting videos for TikTok Tuesday.
