    I just looked over this story, and it seems kinda far fetch'd for me. It is true that retics get quite long, but it doesn't seem possible that one can reach around the 50's. How would an ecosystem support such a large predator? It is true there are some gi-normous (lol) pythons out there, but even seeing a 30footer nowadays is quite remarkable.

    Goldtrap,
    The idea that snakes are maneaters is nonsense. No known snake (well, before this one) can get its mouth around an adult human. We have shoulders that just stick out at the wrong angle.
    Anacondas have been documented to eat SMALL CHILDREN, but not adults.

    I've have that photo and it is definitely a man inside the snake and its DEFINITELY gross and very very sad. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    The story I heard was that 3 men were camping in some jungle (can't remember where)...when they got up one morning, one man was missing. They couldn't find him anywhere. Later they found the snake with a significant LUMP and they killed it and opened it and found the missing man. That may be an "urban myth" but the photo is real. Ugh.
