Top 5 Large Constrictors

Can someone please give me a list of record sizes for the top five largest constrictors, I want to make a graph comparing there sizes and comparing them to humans. I only need the lenghts but if I could get the weight and girth it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Adam!

After some research on the internet this is what I found, not sure how accurate these are:
From the NERD site:
The record size for the Reticulated Python is 33 feet and 300+ pounds.
From Pet Central:
The Largest Green Anaconda recorded in 1944 was 37 1/2 feet.
Hope this helps.

Steve

i have an article here stating the record for a retic is approx 36 feet at 300 + pounds, and an anaconda at approx. 33 feet and 450 pounds the third largest is a coastal carpet at 26 feet and nearly 300 pounds, followed by an african rock at 24 feet nearly 300 pounds that all it lists and not much more detail i'll try to find out more for you, as for the fifth my guess would be a burm probably low twenties in length and mid two hundreds for wieght.

First we need to get the top five straight before we can start looking for info on record lenghts. Retic, Rock, Scrub, Coastal Carpet, and Ananconda. This sound right?

The Coastal Carpet python, I don't think this is correct? I no the order for the top five it goes Retic, Anaconda, Burmese, African- Rock, Scrub. I am a little iffy on the scrub python but I remember at the zoo they have a list of the top 5. I just need to no there sizes so i can make this graph but everything I read is a little different than the next article I read, its realy anoying! LOL. All your help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks Adam!

Well I am not good with numbers but with the species I will give you you can do a bit more reserch and find there record length indavidualy.

1) Reticulated Python
2) Green Anaconda
3) African rock
4) Burmese Python
5) Scrub Python

Now I could be mistaken on the las one but that is a general over view.

I would go with that one, i dont think a coastal carpet would get 26 feet. i would beleave it if there was a pic. but dont think one would get that big. i could be wrong but doesnt sound right to me.
