Dusty "The Wildman" Crum wrestled with the huge snake before containing it. The biggest python ever captured was 18 feet, 2 inches.
It's a good payday for Crum who hunts the giant pythons.
"It is like Andre the Giant versus Hulk Hogan, WrestleMania", Crum said. "Whoo! Sixteen-10, baby! Man, that's a big one!"
The South Florida Water Management District is paying hunters $8.10 per hour to catch snakes and a fee based on how big the snakes are that they catch. But there are other incentives too, starting at $50 dollars for a four-foot long snake, $25 for each additional foot above.

The word "Witness" was embroidered across her eyes, which has always been rumoured to be the title of Perry's forthcoming album. Using his America's Next Top Media Mogul Model training, Diddy stunted on 'em. "It took a half-hour to get ready".
Crum caught the snake as part of his job working for the South Florida Water Management Python Elimination Program. Crum's massive python netted him $375 from the water district - about the same selling the skin. It's also worth noting that Crumm's mega-snake was pregnant with 78 eggs. "Biggest snake I ever caught in my life right there", he said.
The Wildman's snake weighed 130, still a terrifying size.
"We're making a difference by taking the eggs out of the ecosystem", said Wildman.
Although it's not known for sure just how invasive the python is, estimates range from 10,000 pythons in the Everglades to 100,000.
