The Longest Snake Ever Found
The longest snake ever found is a reticulated python that was found in Sulawesi Island, Indonesia in 1912. It was 33 feet long.
While it is believed that the American water boa (known as the anaconda) may grow larger or heavier, the largest snakes found both in the wild and in captivity are reticulated pythons.
The largest snake ever held in captivity was a python named Colossus. She lived at the Pittsburgh Zoo in Pennsylvania and at the time of her death she was 28.5 feet long, had a girth of 37.5 inches and weighed an estimated 320 pounds.
