FLORIDA (CNN)--This could either be one of the coolest things you've ever seen or the most disgusting. A snake swallowed a deer--whole. (Before clicking on the video, please note that it could be disturbing to some.)

A Burmese python was found in the Florida Everglades with an intact 76 pound deer inside of it. The snake was just under 16 feet long.

Wildlife officials are worried because these pythons are upsetting the balance of nature in the area. Burmese pythons aren't native species and don't have any true enemies. Pythons usually eat rodents, birds or smaller snakes.

Officials say snakes like that one are likely pets and that people sometimes let them loose, not expecting them to grow so big.
