A giant 100-meter-long bull-headed snake scared residents of Kalimantan, India. The large reρtile was first seen in a nearby river and quickly became the taƖk of the city.
Local residents have reported seeing the creature squawking along the riverbank, with its enormous bull-like head in an alert position. Wildlife experts warned residents to stay away from the animals as they could be dangerous and aggressive.
Scientists are investigating the origin of the giant snake, and some speculate that it could be the result of a genetic experiment. However, others believe that the creator is simply a legend or popular myth.
Meanwhile, residents of KalimanTɑn are taking extra precautions to stay safe, including riding horses and putting up fences around the river to prevent the giant snake from approaching the city.
The giant bull-headed snake has created a lot of speculation and mystery in the city, and is likely to continue to be a topic of discussion for some time.
The largest living snakes in the world, measured by length or weight, are various members of the families Boidae and Pythonidae. They include anacondas, pythons, and boa constrictors, which are all non-venomous constrictors. The longest venomous snake, with a length of up to 5.6 to 5.7 m (18.5 to 18.8 ft), is the king cobra, and the heaviest venomous snake is likely to be the viper. Gabon (which also has the longest fangs and delivers the most venom) or possibly the eastern diamondback rattlesnake – all three reach maximum weights in the range of 6 to 20 kg (13 to 44 lb) .
There are fourteen species of living snakes with a maximum mass of at least 50 lb (23 kg), as shown in the table below. This includes all species that reach a length of at least 20 feet (6.1 m). There are two other species that reach almost this length: the Oenpelli python (binomial name Nyctophilopython oenpelliensis , Simalia oenpelliensis or Morelia oenpelliensis ), and the olive python ( Liasis olivaceus ). The information available on these two species is quite limited. The Oenpelli python, in particular, has been called the rarest python in the world. By weight, the blood python ( Python brongersmai ) is also a relatively massive snake, although it does not reach exceptional lengths.
It is important to note that there is considerable variation in the maximum reported size of these species, and most measurements are not truly verifiable, so the sizes listed should not be considered definitive. In general, the reported lengths are likely to be somewhat overestimated. Despite what has been, for many years, a standing offer of a large financial reward (initially $1,000 offered by American President Theodore Roosevelt in the early 1900s, later increased to $5,000, then $ 15,000 in 1978 and $50,000 in 1980) for a live, healthy snake over 30 feet (9.14 m) long by the Zoological Society of New York (later renamed the Wildlife Conservation Society), never no attempt has been made to claim the reward.
Although the reticulated python is generally accepted to be the longest snake in the world, most length estimates of more than 6 m (20 ft) have been questioned. It has been suggested that reliable length records for larger snakes should be established from a carcass shortly after death, or alternatively from a heavily sedated snake, using a steel tape and in the presence of witnesses, and They must be published (and preferably recorded on video). At least one reticulated python was measured under full anesthesia at 6.95 m (22.8 ft), and somewhat less reliable scientific reports have appeared out to 10 m (33 ft).
Although weight is easier to measure reliably than length (e.g., by simply measuring the weight of a container with and without the snake inside and subtracting one measurement from the other), a significant factor in the weight of a snake is if it has been kept in captivity and provided an unusual abundance of food in conditions that also cause reduced activity levels. Furthermore, the weight of wild specimens is usually reduced as a symptom of parasitic infestations that are eliminated by veterinary care in captivity. Therefore, the largest weights measured for captive specimens often far exceed the largest weights observed in the wild for the same species. This phenomenon may particularly affect weight measurements of anaconda species that are especially difficult to maintain in captivity due to their semi-aquatic nature. resulting in other species having higher weights measured in captivity. In particular, the green anaconda ( Eunectes murinus ) is an especially massive snake if only observations in the wild are considered.
