I believe the reticulated python is the longest snake in the world however the anaconda can out weigh the retic by a fair amount because of it's huge girth. therefor it is the heaviest in the world. I think this is where the description "largest snake in the world" gets confusing. This title is also based on snakes in the wild, in general, because boidae in captivity can become obese. Actually in captivity, the largest snake on record is a burmese python named "baby" owned by lou Daddona owner of Serpent Safari in Chicago. At 25ft long and over 400lbs she is huge!
