About Amy

I have caught over 500 pythons, won 2nd place in the python bowl, and have been featured on the news, podcasts, magazine articles, and documentaries. The biggest python I caught was 17'3, 110 pounds, and I caught her by myself! I donate python hunts in auctions to raise money for quite a few charities, and to date have raised $285,400.  I figured out how to skin and tan the pythons...a compilation of comedic trial and error that could be a hysterical mini-series.   I have my own product line of leather products, and I make the ONLY Apple watch bands in the WORLD that are made of Florida python skin. I have to say, I feel pretty good about how far I have come in a relatively short amount of time. There is much more to do though, and this is only the beginning!

Jungle Busting

How I Became A Python Hunter

In 2019, I was a real estate broker with a very successful business that I had built over 13 years.   When I learned that there was a python problem in Florida, I had to check it out because I have always had an obsessive passion for snakes and reptiles.  I scheduled a 3 week Florida vacation with my boyfriend, Dave, to see what it was all about.  I connected with a professional python hunter, Donna Kalil, and she took us on a hunt.  We caught a beautiful 9-foot python.  It was absolutely the best day ever!  I was totally hooked.  We went back to Indiana (it was -30 with the wind chill) and I told Dave that I had to move to Florida to figure out how to become a python hunter.  He said he knew before I did that we would be moving, but he had a business to run in Indiana and he would be down as soon as he could.  Because I have so much experience and knowledge of pythons and herpetology in general, I thought that my crazy passion could finally be more than just a hobby.  I could use it to help protect and preserve the Florida Everglades. Less than two months after we came back from that vacation, I moved to Miami by myself.  I had no job, no idea about how to be hired or if they were hiring, (the government was on a freeze so no one was working), and I knew no one. I rented a room from some guy online and I had to share a bathroom with his dad.  Yeah.  On paper it’s ridiculous.  In my heart, I somehow knew it was what I needed to do.  I was more sure of that than anything in my life.  It was the best decision I have ever made and I am so grateful every day that I trusted my intuition and took that crazy leap.


My 17 Foot Python

I caught this giant girl by myself on a hot summer night.  She was 17'3, weighed 110 pounds, and measured 24 inches around her belly.  Even though she was huge, she wasn't a record, but she is my personal best so far!  The record for the longest Burmese Python caught in Florida is 18'9.
