Largest Snake in the world or is there any bigger?
 
Hello guys, , i have just signed up the forum for just asking one issue. There is one video on youtube which has been recorded by National Geographic and it says that this is the largest snake ever.. Is there any bigger snake than this ??


This is the link of the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cm-RXTM1RQk&t=23s

What they mean is the species. The green anaconda is considered the largest snake species in the world. It's the longest/heaviest = largest.

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 :)

You are such an IDIOT! You can't even read the question properly!! It wasn't the least popular snake in the world....but the LARGEST!!!!!! (Take your tinkertoys, and go home....)

Donald Trump is a VERY RICH MAN! AND...HE IS .....PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!!)

Let me clue your anuorismin brain: People do not get rich, or rise to power, because they possess they just fall into it...(Although it helps!!!)

I'll tell you what would be SOOOO telling....a game show between Trump and Peloski!!!

Defend that!!!!

Sigh, learn how to read and spell...it's Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi; and yes, she's a Congresswoman, but I don't know if she's Polish or not, so I'll leave that be...for now.

Oh, by the way, learn how to recognize sarcasm...you'll live a longer, happier life when you realize when someone's being facetious; so grow up yourself, and learn that name calling ceased to be an effective method to assault an individual's psyche back in the third grade.

But, before I trot on...
1. Aneurism is the correct spelling...
2. "...because they possess they just fall into it..." Are you talking about inhereting wealth, vice earning it through sweat and toil in that sentence? Can someone please translate?
2. Defend what? I simply made a statement...it wasn't political in nature, it was just a statement of the man's--and he is just a man...I think--character and nothing more.

However, you seemed to take such an affront to my sarcasm, that I'm beginning to wonder who's--I'll plagiarize your term here and return it to you--the real "idiot".

:)

I believe the person you are replying to was being facetious.

I suppose "largest" depends on how you quantify it. The longest reported nonvenomous snake was a reticulated python that topped out at 33 feet (10 meters) long. The heaviest / bulkiest snake was a green anaconda that was reported to be 29 feet (8.8 meters) long and around 500 lbs. (227 kg). Those reports may or may not be accurate. Without anesthetizing the snake, laying it out and getting precise lengths and weights those claims can be dubious. A lot of people overestimate the length and weight of snakes they encounter and even photographs can be misleading.

The longest species of venomous snake is the king cobra at up to 19 feet (6 meters) and the heaviest is the Gaboon viper (up to 44 lbs. or 20 kg). The Gaboon viper also holds the record for longest fangs and highest volume of venom delivered in a bite.

Play nice everyone. Let's keep the focus on literal snakes and save the politics for a different forum. :)
