 Massive reticulated pythons!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i fought i would make a thread showing off some of the largest/longest retics ever. the first pic is of cassius was fought to be 28.5ft but found out to be closer to 24/25ft. still cassius was probably the longest ever captive retic. and just look at the size of his head!!!!



the second retic is of the retic which was said to be 49ft but accruatly measured at 23ft makeing it probably the worlds largest captive snake.



the third pic is of twinkie from reptile zoo/prehistoric pets. apparantly 22/23ft and the worlds largest snake. but in my opinon a fat 19ft retic. but she still aint the worlds largest snake.



the 4th retic is the largest in europe owned by fileretic this sumatran retic is 22ft+



the last pic is of a retic called samantha who is kept at bronx zoo was supposed to be 26ft but now belived to be 21/22ft



there is loads and loads more 20ft+ retics i could put in this thread like prony or marcy but i couldnt find any more good pics. all of you probably thinking theres lots of bigger and longer snakes like that in the u.s like medusa but all of them are just exaggerations to get money or there just guessing . most of the worlds largest retics are kept in south east asia. who knowns the size of the retics kept in the deeps of asia.

IF YOU LOT HAVE ANY PICS OF REALLY LARGE RETICS PLEASE POST SOME PICS UP!!!!!!!!

cassius was between 20 and 21ft mate i have a good stretched out pic that shows size,obviously guinness recorded him at 27.5ft which of course is clearly an exaggeration

big betty was certainly shorter than 22ft despite the claims on her of 23 and 24ft,i would have judged her around 20ft give or take,samantha from bronx zoo was measured on camera a couple of years before her death at between 22 and 23ft long

i agree that twinkie appears approx 20ft give or take,fragrant flower in the second photo down was measured at 22.9ft (7metres)she is most certainly one of the longest in captivity,the measurement was taken by two independent sources therefore appears reliable

thanks, do you think there was ever retic 24ft/25ft do you think they may have been that size many years back. and cassius has such a big head for a 20/21ft retic

i have not yet seen evidence in photographs or in person for a retic over 23.5ft long.
cassius in the stretched out pic ive got is no more than 21ft long he looks closer to 20ft to be honest,he is stretched out on a ladder in the pic,his head is quite large but the pic you have at the top of this post is a perspective pic that makes his head look much larger than what it is, also the owner nick nyoca is quite a small man
