Monster Snake

Florida Department of Fish and Wildlife received a complaint from an Apopka, Florida neighborhood. Neighbors were concerned because of a large pet snake. Upon investigation a DFW officer discovered a giant Burmese python. The snake is 18 feet long, 400 pounds and 30 inches around the thickest part of her. Her name is Delilah and according to her current owner,Melvin Cheever, she is docile, well fed, non aggressive and happy. Well fed is right, when investigators arrived Cheever had just fed Delilah 7 rabbits. Cheever says his brother has raised her for 16 years. The brother is moving to West Virginia and has gone ahead to prepare living space for Delilah. That is why the snake resides with Cheever. One of the neighborhood complaints is that Delilah sometimes escapes her chainlink cage, which Cheever admits is true. DFW has placed the snake with a caregiver who has proper permits for such animals till they can ascertain Cheever's permit status and decide if the animal has been properly caged and cared for by him.
