Animators got a hold of the South Florida man who caught the largest Burmese python -- 18 feet, 8 inches long and 128 pounds -- ever found in Florida.
TomoNewsUS created the animation, which depicts Jason Leon catching the snake in rural southeast Miami-Dade County on May 11. The video was posted to YouTube on Wednesday.
TomoNewsUS also creates Taiwanese-animated news stories, said Jamie Cheng with Next Media Animation.
The previous record for the longest python caught in Florida was a 17-foot-7 inch, 164 ½-pound python caught in August in Everglades National Park.
Florida prohibits owning or selling pythons, an invasive species, as pets.
