Here is the quote taken from: http://www.geocities.com/reticulated...02/index.html.
Im sorry but i could not find the authors name.
" The Reticulated Python is the longest snake in the world on record. Even thought there have been reports of the Green Anacondas reaching lengths of over 50 to 60 feet, but no Anaconda ever actually captured has ever been more than 30 feet. The Retic. can reach lengths of up to 30 feet, but they rarely reach over 20 feet".
