55 foot snake found in Malaysia


This real?



quote:

Photograph purporting to show a 55ft snake found in a forest in Malasia has become an internet sensation. The thread claimed the snake was one of two enormous boas found by workers clearing forest for a new road. They apparently woke up the sleeping snakes during attempts to bulldoze a huge mound of earth. “On the third dig, the operator found there was blood amongst the soil, and with a further dig, a dying snake appeared,” said the post. “By the time the workers came back, the wounded boa had died, while the other snake had disappeared. The bulldozer operator was so sick that he couldn’t even stand up.” The post claimed that the digger driver was so traumatised that he suffered a heart attack on his way to hospital and later died. The dead snake was 55ft (16.7m) long, weighed 300kg and was estimated to be 140 years old, according to the post.

Maybe on swamp people. And it would be 10,000 pounds as 2 girls hoist it into the boat.

You're a snake expert, too?

Not a spelling expert though.

eta: just noticed you copied and pasted from the article. They misspelled it, so that's a pretty good indicator it's bs.

Ice Cube scoffs at your skepticism.

That's a big snake, but it isn't 55' long.

Female boas incubate eggs inside their bodies and give birth up to 60 live babies. Boas are about 2 feet (0.6 meters) long when they are born and grow continually throughout their 25 to 30-year lifespan. The largest boa constrictor ever found measured 18 feet (5.5 meters).

From MSNBC

quote:

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesian villagers claim to have captured a python that is almost 49 feet long and weighs nearly 990 pounds, a local official said. 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. Local government official Rachmat said the reticulated python measured 48 feet 8 inches and weighed in at 983 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, Ill. — weighs 402 pounds, the book said on its Web site. The Indonesian newspaper Republika 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.

new World snake also. No matter how Malaysia is spelled, the proper snake would have been python. Prolly reticulated.

In spite of what was for many years a standing offer of $50,000 for a live, healthy snake over 9.1 metres (30 ft) long by the New York Zoological Society (NYZS), known since 1993 as the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), no attempt to claim this reward was ever made.

That is not a big excavator, if the bucket is 8' long that would put the snake at about 34' or so. Maybe a little bigger depending on how big the bucket is.
