Snakes always fascinate humans and are considered to be one of the scariest reptile of the world. Some of them are venomous that when injected and leads to a painful death. A few of them have other methods of killing their prey. They wrapped themselves around the body of the victim and crushed them to death. However, not all snakes are scary or venomous. They are very important part of the ecosystem and keep balance of pests like mouse, rat, etc. When we think of the world’s biggest snake, we need to take consideration of different aspects of its size. This includes the mass of the snake, the length and the dimensions of its body girth. No snake can ever match the dimensions of the world’s biggest snake, “the Anaconda”. The Anaconda lives throughout tropical South America, Central America and east of the Andes, mainly in the Amazon and Orinoco basins. It also found in Trinidad.
Anacondas give birth to living young snake. Sometimes as many as 100 may be born, but most often 20 to 40 baby snakes, about 2 feet in length, are born at a time. The young are called ‘neonates’. They can hunt and care for themselves soon after birth, but they are defenseless against large predators and often fall prey to them. They eat small rodents like rats and mice, baby birds, frogs and small fishes.
The photo and story originally appeared in the People’s Daily, which serves as the official newspaper for the Communist Party in China. It stated that the biggest snake was one of two that had awakened by local workers digging up huge mounds of earth in preparation of a road outside of Guping city, Jiangxi province.
While one largest snake, which was reported to be 55-feet (16.7 meters) long. It weighed 300 kilograms, and its age was estimated to 140 years. The construction workers accidentally injured the huge snake for the casualty of bulldozers digging. The operator found that there was blood amongst the dirt. The workers found the injured snake in dead, and the other had gone when the workers to flee in terror. They were frightened to see the largest snakes in the world ever. Reports say that the worker was so afraid and shocked of the blood and the largest snake that he had a heart attack on the way to the hospital, and dead later that day.
The lord of this jungle was a truly amazing reptile—a biggest snake more than 48 feet long and weighing more than a ton. This giant serpent looked something like a modern-day boa constrictor, but behaved more like today’s water-dwelling anaconda. It was a swamp denizen and a terrifying predator, which is able to eat any animal that caught its eye. The thickest part of its body would be nearly as high as a man’s waist. Scientists call it “Titanoboa cerrejonensis”.
Anyone think that an anaconda is big enough to swallow a capybara or tapir whole, they should see the size of the giant snake that scientists discovered in a coal mine in Columbia, South America in 2008.The fossils of a worlds biggest snake were discovered in an open coal mine in the Amazon rainforest. A terrifying 48-foot, 2,500lb (1,135 kilograms) predator that slithered through rainforests about 60 million years ago has been brought back to the present by the Smithsonian. Lead study author Jason Head said, “That’s longer than a city bus and heavier than a car.” In the wake of the dinosaurs, other predators battled for supremacy and Titanoboa was the biggest or largest snake in the world that would dwarf any anaconda, and which is undoubtedly largest in history. Researchers say the extinct snake was even larger than the wildest thoughts of directors of modern horror movies.
Titanoboa is 48 feet long and weighs 2,500 pounds — think of this snake as being about the length of a male sperm whale, and about as weighty as a hippo. This monster reptile’s closest living relative is the boa constrictor, which averaging just 8-10 feet in long, seems relatively puny in comparison.
