The largest documented length for a snake in a North American collection was a reticulated python that was kept at the Pittsburgh Zoo in the 1950's. In 1956 it was reliably measured at 28 ft. 6ins. Its weight was estimated at over 320 pounds. There is a picture of it in Pope's "The Giant Snakes" and its name was appropriately enough "Colossus". Grant
