18-foot pet python gets new home

Apopka, Fla. -- A "monster" python named Delilah has been moved to a new home in Florida amid concerns her back yard cage couldn't contain her, Apopka authorities said.

The 18-foot pet snake is at least 16 years old and weighs more than 400 pounds, Florida Fish and Wildlife investigator Rick Brown told The Miami Herald in a story published Saturday.

"To me it's a Goliath. It's a monster of a snake," Brown said, adding it was the largest snake he had ever seen.

Delilah was removed from her Apopka home Friday and taken to a person licensed to care for reptiles, Brown said.
