    Default Largest Snake in the World

    Photograph purporting to show a 55ft snake found in a forest in Malaysia has become an internet sensation. Biggest snake in the world

    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. This is Biggest snake in the world!!

    “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. Biggest snake in the world

    I would have probably died of a heart attack as well. Craziness.

    That's a pretty old pic. The snake is only about 15-20ft in reality. The bucket is way out in front of the machine.

    I hadn't seen that picture before, but that was my thought as soon as I saw the picture. That excavator isn't big enough even for much of a bucket...otherwise it would tip the thing over under the wait of whatever it scooped up. If the bucket's not that big, the snake's not that big (relative to pythons).

    Still a huge snake, regardless of how you look at it.

    Wow! That's huge!!! But on a somewhat unrelated note, it seems that LSU has its own snake problem Somebody At LSU's Pro Day Asked If A Spandex Shorts-Clad Russell Shepard "Could Run With A Snake In His Pants"
