    The 49 foot monster apparently when measured came up between 21 and 23 feet, this is exactly how all these stories go. Someone grossly exaggerates and by the power of Chinese whispers it just gets bigger and bigger. The longest snake currently in captivity is Medusa another Retic that measures 25 feet in length.

    What about that Reticulated Python that measured 49ft long and about 985lbs? Or was that proven as fake?

    Edit. Sorry, just read the post above me haha.

    I don't need to argue... I already know!!!

    Guiness book of world records has it printed there in black and white... :)

    In fact, even with a picture... It took several people to hold it out, even when it was being a bit flaccid....

    This thread is turning more into a dirty chat room, than a decent thread about the largest snake. :rolleyes:
