Holy sh**. Those idiots feed dogs to that snake? Poor digs... just shows you how how cultures deviate from eachother. I bet if that sh** was done over here in N. America, PeTA would be all over them like ticks.

Hmmm...I'm all for Peta. that is if it stands for people eating tastey animals. Anyways I heard snakes taste like chicken, so they should cook it and give it to starving people in the country. laugh.gif

I think this is an absolutely AMAZING discovery. The previous record for captured Anacondas was 32 ft , this one was a tad under 50 ... , 1.5 times as large ...

This means that perhaps somewhere in the depths of the ocean there could be Great White Sharks that are 40 ft long , or Crocodiles that are close to 35 ft ...

I might be mistaken, but wasn't some American Zoo offering a million Dollars for the sucessfull live capture of a snake over 35ft?

I'm surprised that if this story is true, why is it not appearing in every newspaper around the world?

Great... And here I was hoping to take surfing lessons this summer.... You're not gonna see me out on the water... I think I'll do something nice and safe... Like train alibino tigers as attack kitties. I need a nice little army of white tigers to take care of the growing snacke population...

Anyone know where I can get some Sabertooth Tiger DNA?

what a shame for the poor snake, they should have left it well alone to get on with its own life!
