Hi everyone. Here i would like to post an interesting fact about snakes.

Many people believe that the South American Anaconda is the longest snake in the world. But its not been proved yet. May be we would have seen in the Hollywood movie. The reason behind the above fact is that once the US President Theodore Roosevelt offered $5000 to anyone who would produce the skin of vertebrae of an Anaconda of more than a 9m long. The US wildlife Conservation Society increased this offer to even $50000,but the prize has never been claimed.

Then which one is the longest..?

Its the reticulated or Royal Python is probably the longest snake up to 10.7m.
But Anaconda succeed Python in weight as it weighs up to 230kg.
