Animal researchers may overstate things from time to time, pimping their latest discoveries as the greatest, most important contributions to the study of nature. But when a biologist speaks in exclamation points, perhaps it's best to listen.
At least, that was the case late this summer, when an American ecologist was forced to yelp "She was a beast!" after discovering one long, slithering nightmare in the Florida Everglades. In August, researchers found a massive 17 foot, seven inch Burmese python, a record size for the state.
