From huge pythons dominating the everglades and eating everything in sight to venomous snakes that can kill you in 15 minutes, here are 10 if the biggest snakes in the world!
10. Florida Python: Burmese pythons are theoretically native to Southeast Asia. However, they also do extremely well in Florida, so now we all have to watch out for the Giant Python invasion!! Not so long ago, the Everglades teemed with raccoons, skunks, swamp rabbits and other small creatures invading garbage cans and occasionally seen as roadkill.
9. Black Mamba: Venomous snakes are generally much smaller than constrictors, but that doesn’t mean they can’t grow to relatively huge sizes. The black mamba is one of the most dangerous and fastest snakes in the world, slithering at speeds of up to 13 mph. They are found throughout southern and eastern Africa.
8. Medusa: Medusa holds the world record for being the longest snake ever to be kept in captivity, and she was gigantic. Measuring 25 feet 2 inches long (7.67 meters) and weighing 350 pounds (158.8 kg), it took 15 people to hold her at her full length so she could be measured to qualify for the record.
7. Malaysian Python: In 2016, workers at a construction site on Penang Island, Malaysia, spotted something moving under a fallen tree. They went to take a closer look and, to their astonishment, found that it was a huge reticulated python.
6. Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake: The Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake is native to the southeastern US and is one of the heaviest venomous snakes on the continent and easily the largest type of rattlesnake. Locals have known for a long time to be wary of them because of their long fangs and potent venom, but sometimes you can’t avoid them if they strayed into town or into your home!.
5. King Cobra: King Cobras are the longest venomous snakes in the world! They are also probably the most famous venomous snake species in the world because of their recognizable hoods, and they have played an important role in local Indian and Southeast Asian cultures for thousands of years.
4. Brazilian Anaconda: Anacondas can be found throughout South America and are the largest known snake species on Earth. They grow to these sizes because they depend on their muscular bodies to envelop and squeeze the life out of their prey, and there is no creature in the rainforest that is safe from them.
3. Laophis Crotaloides: The first fossils of the extinct Laophis crotaloides were found in 1857, but after these specimens were lost, it would be over 150 years before more were found, and the truth behind this prehistoric monster was discovered.
2. Green Anaconda: The green anaconda is the largest snake in the world by its weight. Measuring between 20-30 feet and weighing between 200-550 pounds, this snake is the longest and heaviest snake alive! They can be found in the freshwater streams, ponds, swamps and marshes of the Amazon.
1. Titanoboa: The Titanoboa was the largest snake we know of that ever lived. At over 48 feet long and weighing in excess of one and a half tons, it was an absolute monster. They lived around 60 million years ago in South America, and potentially beyond, and we know this because of a remarkably well-preserved fossil that was discovered in an open pit coal mine in Colombia.
