Rarely seen Everglades mink captures giant snake.. A pair of hikers caught the moment a mink crossed a road carrying a large snake in its mouth in Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), a mother and daughter were on their way back from a nature hike when they spotted the rare mink cross the road.
The mink then crossed back over the road just seconds later, but this time it was hauling a large snake in its mouth.
The hikers caught the moment on camera.
Mink can eat small mammals including fish, birds and snakes, according to FWC.
Wildlife officials said minks are a state threatened species and a sighting is rare.
FWC is asking anyone who spots a mink or weasel to report the sighting.
