Florida Fish and Wildlife said a 10-foot python was rescued from under the hood of a car.

FWC said they got a call about a large python under the hood of a Mustang and shortly after, officers safely captured and removed the invasive snake.

"This is a success for native wildlife since pythons prey on native birds, mammals and reptiles. Thanks to the citizen who reported the python to us," FWC said.

If you see a Burmese python or other invasive species, FWC asks that you report it to the hotline at (888) IVE-GOT1.
