Terror and Shock: the World's Largest Snakes Ever

Snakes are scary creatures. Have you ever seen some of the world’s largest snakes? They are not only longer in size but also heavier in weight.







An Indonesian caught a 14.85m long Python weighing 447kg. Up to now, this python is regarded as the world’s largest snake. It was captured in the jungle of the western part of Sumatra Island. The owner of the snake later sold this snake to a park and the staff at the park gave it a name as “guihua”. “guihua” here, in general, refers to a type of a flower. That is why this name may sound gentle to hear, but it is indeed a scary scene when “guihua” opens its mouth while attacking its enemy. It can swallow the whole body of a human in a very short period. According to the Indonesian media, an examination on its length, weight and species has been carried out extensively by Indonesia’s National Institute of Science, Institute of Agriculture and other academic institutions. Many scientists said that they had never seen such a long snake.
According to the sources of Indonesia, it is not an easy task to subdue such a gigantic snake. It usually needs an accumulation of 8 to 10 strong men’s energy to get hold of this snake. Previously, the Guinness World Records has recorded the world’s longest snake which has a length of 10m. However, this snake was shot in 1912 in Indonesia. Meanwhile, the scientists disclosed that the discovery of this world’s longest snake is the Southeast Asia’s indigenous snake. This snake is commonly seen in Indonesia, Philippines but generally its length hardly reached to such extend.
This snake was discovered in the Amazon Rain Forest and it is the world’s largest snake. It can grow up to a maximum of 10m and weight in more than 225kg. It likes to swim in water, and sometimes it survives in the mud or in shallow water. It feeds on turtles, dolphins, tapir, and even 2 ½ m long alligator can become its prey. It chokes its prey to death before swallowing it and it can go with an empty stomach for few weeks to sustain its live. It gives birth to 70 small snakes. These vulnerable small snakes are more likely to be eaten by alligators along the shore, but when they grow bigger, the alligators will become the food that they feed on.
They are believed to be the world’s heaviest snake. They like to live in swamp, shallow river and slow moving river. They are most active at night, but sometimes you may encounter they have their bodies sunbathing along the shore. Living in the tropical regions of South America, it is also regarded as the world’s largest snake. Adult snake can grow to more than 10m long or more.
This long snake has its eyes on its head to ease its movement under the water. Adult snake can catch a meter long crocodile easily. It has been a record that this snake has eaten an American Jaguar within a few minutes. It lays eggs with each snake has a length of 60cm. Its huge body, amazing energy and scary attack has included it as the scariest creature to be scared by other animals in the food chain. Its attack is just like a movie of “anaconda” that you may have watched. When the living thing is being captured by this snake, it will get hold of its prey tightly and later a bone fracture sound can be heard.
Have you ever thought of how the snake, particularly the python captured a Kangaroo and then eating it greedily and cruelly? Now, see yourself the whole process on how the python is swallowing the kangaroo that I managed to capture.
Now you may wonder how the giant python swallowing one big animal like a pig. First, the python swallowed its head and then it gradually swallowed the entire body of the pig. As the python’s lower jaw can be misplaced as it desires, and thus it can swallow animals that are bigger than its size. Now, watch the whole process on how the python has turned the pig into its delicious meal. Here are photos I managed to capture to share with you.
Lastly, what can I say about these snakes. They’re indeed very scary, aren’t they?
