Add another badass skill to Gordon Ramsay's massively impressive resume. The celeb chef was recently spotted hunting pythons—yes, those gigantic snakes that can reach over 30 feet long and swallow a man whole—in South Florida, along with his equally badass 17-year-old son, Jack.
Why the f*** was Gordon Ramsay hunting pythons in the Everglades, a reasonable person who talks like the foul-mouthed chef might ask? He was filming a segment for an upcoming episode of The F Word, naturally.
Ramsay and python-hunter (!) Kyle Penniston killed three Burmese pythons, and the always resourceful chef even cooked one on-site using a portable oven, as reported by Food and Wine.
"It was a blast hunting with the Ramsays and they were very respectful of what we are doing here in the Everglades, fighting these invasive predators to save the ecosystem," Penniston said in the article. "What an honor to have my first taste of python cooked by Chef Ramsay."
While snake hunting might seem like an odd or cruel sport, the Burmese python is considered an invasive species and was only discovered in the Everglades in the 1970s. To help curb their numbers, the South Florida Water Management District has allowed professional python hunters onto government-owned land to hunt the python in an effort to restore the natural ecosystem.
And hey, at least Ramsay didn't let the snake go to waste.
