    Oldest snake.

    Hi guys, my little sister was just reading the latest guiness book of world records and when she read out the oldest recorded snake I remembered someone on here asking a similar question a while ago. Not sure if you wanted oldest living snake or what, but here is the oldest recorded.....

    Popeye was a male Common Boa constrictor who lived at the Philadelphia zoo in Pensylvania USA until he died on the 15th April 1977 at the ripe old age of 40 years, 3 months and 14 days old.
    He who turns and runs away, lives to run another day.

    RE: Oldest snake.

    I was told by a good source that that giant carpet caught---->"intergrade" could have been around the 50 year old range but obviously hard to tell from a wild animal,it's head was absolutely massive!!!!

    Any know how to save a pic from a word document...i've tried but not succeeded?

    Copy the pic into paint or some other picture program and save it as a .JPEG file.

    that might work, right click then "edit" should open in paint.

    How did they arrive at the 50 yr old figure? Did they cut it open and count the rings?
    It is much easier to criticise than it is to create, that's why so many people do it.

    A tricky question.

    I open the document and do a screen capture of the picture, and save it as a jpeg.

    Once work grabs it you have been microshafted and I have been unable to come up with a better way.
