If you live in Florida and are looking to make $370 now you can, but it won't be easy...

There are a gang of about 25 snake hunters who have captured more than a ton of snakes out of swamps.

The state offered a $175,000 bounty in an effort to control populations of the invasive pythons. 

The pythons have been killing everything from deer and alligators, to rabbits and raccoons.

Bounty hunters are paid $8.10 an hour, but there are extra payouts for extra python.
