    Python swallows cat in Florida backyard

    Miami Gardens, Florida - Elidia Rodriguez of Miami Gardens had been looking for her year-old Siamese cat for two days when her son pointed out the bulging Burmese python slithering in her backyard.

    Experts say that bulge in the 12-foot snake is probably the missing 15-pound cat.

    Rodriguez got the cat last year as a post-hurricane gift. She named the cat Frances, after the storm.

    The snake was spotted in Rodriguez's backyard yesterday.

    Experts with the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue antivenin unit says Frances wouldn't have stood a chance against the larger predator.
    The snake was captured and taken to the Sense of Wonder Nature Center at AD Barnes National Park.

    Earlier this month, authorities say a 13-foot python burst after it apparently tried to swallow a live, six-foot alligator whole.

    And everywhere else. No pythons out here (as far as I know), but plenty of coyotes, mountain lions, raccoons, hawks, large dogs, cars, etc.
