BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - A resident in Brevard County quickly called wildlife officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission after recently spotting a 9-foot green anaconda.

FWC said the snake was near State Road 50 at the St. Johns River near the Brevard and Orange county line.

Officers said they responded and euthanized the constrictor before it could escape into the water.

If you see nonnative fish and wildlife, the FWC urges you to report it to their Invasive Species Hotline at 1-888-IveGot1 (1-888-483-4861), online at IVEGOT1.org or by using the free smart phone app IVEGOT1.

If you would like to provide hands-on help to combat non-native species in Florida, register for the Python Challenge.
