Florida wildlife officials are asking the public for its help in deciding rules for venomous reptiles.

Through an online survey, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has six questions for the public about non-native and native venomous reptiles.

For example, FWC’s Captive Wildlife Section Capt. Kara Hooker says the survey asks 'should they be kept in zoos?'

Two alligators, each weighing more than 720 pounds, were caught in Mississippi this past weekend, setting a new state record for heaviest male alligator. Both animals measured more than 13 feet in length; it took hours to get the trophies into the hunters' boats.

The huge reptiles were brought down on the same day, setting a state record that stood for less than two hours before it was broken again.
