Burmese python found hidden in clothes at Homestead flea market

Snake estimated to be about 7 feet long

HOMESTEAD, Fla. – A customer got more than just a bargain while shopping at a Homestead flea market Sunday morning.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Lt. Scott Mullen said the woman was rummaging through some clothing on a table when she discovered a wild Burmese python nestled between the merchandise.

Mullen was called to remove the snake, which he estimated to be about 7 feet long. He said it appeared the python had recently eaten something.

The snake was being turned over to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
