At 25ft in length and weighing in at a staggering 300lbs, Medusa is the world's largest snake.

On display at the Edge of Hell haunted house attraction in Kansas City, the massive python takes 15 people to lift and will soon be officially recognised as the largest snake living in captivity. Medusa feeds on a 40lb animal once a week but is capable of consuming something much larger, including a human being.

"She weighs more than 300lbs, is 25ft long and it takes 15 people to hold her."

Many animals would go extinct if we just let them all go free. I know not a good thing but a reality. Besides nothing wrong with having a snake as a pet as long as it's cared for. Or shopuld we set all the poodles loose as well Absolutely set the poodles free! That snake looks hungry.

I actually live near and work in Kansas city. I am surprised I hadn't seen this on our local news. My god they run with anything to get something on the news. I surprised they missed this unless i just didnt see it . If I was into haunted houses I would go see it. The edge of hell is supposed to be a pretty good one from what I hear.
