Officials: World's Largest Snake Caught
Snake Reportedly Eats 3 Or 4 Dogs A Month

POSTED: 6:36 AM EST December 29, 2003

JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Indonesian villagers claim to have captured a python that is almost 49.21 feet long and weighs nearly 992.07 pounds, an official said Monday.

If confirmed, it would be the largest snake ever kept in captivity.

Hundreds of people have flocked to see the snake at a primitive zoo in Curugsewu village on the country's main island of Java, Republika reported. It splashed two large pictures of the reptile across its back page.

Local government official Rachmat said the reticulated python measured 49 feet and weighed in at 985 pounds.

The Guinness Book of World Records lists the longest ever captured snake to be 32 feet. The heaviest -- a Burmese Python kept in Gurnee, Illinois -- weighs 403 pounds, the book said on its Web site.

Rebublika said the snake, which was caught last year but only recently put on public display, eats three or four dogs a month.

Reticulated pythons are the world's longest snakes. They are capable of eating animals as large as sheep, and have been known to attack and consume humans.

The species is native to the swamps and jungles of Southeast Asia.

How about a pic?

This is directed at the news article.
If someone is going to run a story like this, they should provide at least one picture.

I tore [url]news.google.com[/url] up looking for pics.  Everyone is just repeating the same story, sans pic.

If it's for real I'm sure we'll see Steve Irwin and Jeff Corwin fighting it out for a photo op. [:D]

My thoughts exactly. I remember seeing a photo on rotten.com of a snake that eat a woman in some village. The photo was a very large snake cut open with the woman inside.

How the hell did they get it to the zoo?

A "primitive" zoo, at that.

Pretty good reptile wrangling, for a bunch of third-worlders, I think.

Bravo!

(And I would LOVE to see pics of it too)
