    The python was 18.2 feet long.

    An 18.2-foot-long python was found dead in the Florida Everglades on Tuesday.

    The python was found five miles north of the Tamiami Trail by a South Florida Water Management District employee who was working on a routine canal and levee inspection, agency spokesperson Randy Smith said.

    The snake was taken to the University of Florida campus in Davie for a necropsy. Officials are investigating to see if the python was carrying any eggs.
