Biggest Snakes in the World - longest snake in the world

Fluffy the world's largest captive snake has died

The world's longest snake living in captivity -- a 24-foot python called Fluffy -- has died due to an apparent tumour, say keepers in Ohio.

18-years-old and weighing 300-pounds Fluffy held the title of longest snake by Guinness World Records and was a hit attraction at Columbus Zoo.

But a spokesperson for the US zoo, where Fluffy had lived since March 2007, has confirmed workers yesterday found her dead due to an apparent tumour.

While the news will come as a blow to many fans of Fluffy, it will no doubt be well received by the Ohio rabbit and mouse communities.

Largest snake 'as long as a bus'

The discovery of fossilised remains belonging to the world's largest snake has been reported in Nature journal.

Titanoboa was 13m (42ft) long - about the length of a bus - and lived in the rainforest of north-east Colombia 58-60 million years ago.

The snake was so wide it would have reached up to a person's hips, say researchers, who have estimated that it weighed more than a tonne.

Green anacondas - the world's heaviest snakes - reach a mere 250kg (550lbs).

Reticulated pythons - the world's longest snakes - can reach up to 10m (32ft).
