Re: Largest Snake in the world or is there any bigger?

Reticulated pythons are generally accepted to be the longest snake in the world but the anaconda is not just shorter but considerably heavier (around double the mass of more).

There are a few other species considered to be giants. Rock pythons, Burmese pythons, scrub pythons are also considered giants. Olive Pythons are not far behind.

There are some more uncommon species that also get very large - Boelens pythons, papuan pythons.

Do you see a theme developing?! Most of the really big snakes are pythons
