What is the worlds longest snake?

Not type of snake, but what snake has the record for being the worlds longest and is it still alive?


Answer by  jacksmith (32)

The world's longest still living snake is the reticulated python. The longest snake still alive is almost certainly a Python named Colossus at the Pittsburg zoo. She measures 28. 5 feet, and 320 pounds. It is more typical however, for this type of snake to grow to 10 or 20 feet.

There are several species of large snake in south america and africa. Of these species the longest would be either the red tailed boa constrictor or the articulated python. Another large species of snake that can reach up to 30 feet in length is the anaconda which is native to south america.

The python is the worlds longest snake and it is about 33 feet long. It's still alive today. It holds a great record in the world. You can also see some videos of that on you tube. There is also a 49 footer in Indonesia that's not really recoded in the books.
