That version of "fragrant flower" (21 feet long) is still at that little zoo.
The "real" big snake, is suspected to still be with the tribe far in the jungle, and there are people trying to find out if a monster did exist. Those people think that the 21 foot snake was the biggest the people could find when forced to give it to the tourism board.
Keep in mind, there are still many people searching for Unicorns.
I like to think there may be a huge snake living with a tribe in the jungle, but I also like to think that bigfoot and the lochness monster will one day be found and proven.
