The biggest and longest python in the world was found in Indonesia. This huge snake is 14.85 meters long; the widest part of the body has a volume of less than 85 inches with a weight of 447 pounds. A group of local villagers had gone to the forest in order to obtain supplies, and they saw this beast in a meadow. Too scared to do anything, they called 58-year-old expert in pythons, which organized the whole operation to capture the snake. It took 65 people to beat this beast. After they captured it, they were blessed by the local tribal leaders because they consider pythons to be deities. The python is now the main attraction in a zoo, where about 700 people see it daily. Although large, this snake is incredibly slow and sluggish, and does not represent too big a risk for workers and visitors. But, one thing is certain – to be in the cage with it is certainly not a pleasant experience.
