Medusa: the world’s largest snake of 300 lbs (135 kg) and 25 ft (7.5 m).
Medusa, the world’s largest snake weighs more than 300 lbs (135 kg), is 25ft (7.5 meters) long and it takes 15 people to hold her.
Medusa, a massive python is set to slither into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest snake living in captivity.
The giant snake, which will be on display at the Edge of Hell haunted house attraction in Kansas City, eats a 40lb animal about once a week but could easily eat something weighing more than 100lbs.
Medusa will soon be visited by representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records, who are coming to verify her new title.
Larry Elgar, Medusa‘s trainer told NBC Action News he isn’t intimidated by the massive python.
“They’ve actually cut people out of them, they are man eaters.
“Fear is just a lack of understanding. I have no fear. I understand that she can kill me. I’ve been wrapped up and put unconscious by a reticulated python that was only 18 feet long.
“I understand the repercussions, but that’s no reason to fear. That car you drove in has killed more people than anything else in the world. But you’re not scared when you put your keys in it, are you?”
Larry Edgar said he bought Medusa, who is now seven-year-old, as a baby and she is still growing.
“Seven years ago, this snake was 24 inches long, as big as my finger,” Larry Edgar said.
Medusa is set to bump Fluffy, a reticulated python, off the top spot.
At 24 feet long, Fluffy held the record for longest snake living in captivity until she died at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Powell, Ohio, last October.
