‘World’s Biggest Snake’ Lifted by Crane Out of Rainforest in Dominica
Incredible footage shows the moment a 10-foot snake was lifted off the ground by a digger. The colossal ʙᴇᴀsᴛ appears to have been found by workers clearing out part of the Dominica rainforest.
With the reptile being at least 10ft long in length, the snake being lifted in the claws of the digger at a height but incredibly is still almost able to touch the floor. One said, “It looks like world record sʜɪᴛ.” Another posted: ‘Really. That thing is really jumbo.’ It is not clear what kind of snake it was. When the snake was pulled out, it was still alive as it could visibly be seen slithering around in the claw (and perhaps is wondering what’s going on).
Due to the sheer size of the creature, it takes the effort of three men to attempt to move the snake – and it appears they were sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟɪɴɢ to get all of the snake in there properly. Of course, the sheer size of the creature shocked an onlooker who couldn’t quite believe what was unfolding in front of his eyes and can be heard saying “my mother, what.” Reticulated pythons are usually found in the rainforests of Southeast Asia.
Dominica has been nicknamed “the island of nature” due to its variety of wildlife. The largest snakes in the world belong to the python and boa families. Although they can reach enormous lengths, they tend to be thin compared to those like green anacondas, the heaviest snakes in the world. The heaviest anaconda ever recorded was 227 kilograms (35 stones). The huge snake was 8.43 meters long, with a circumference of 1.11 meters. The largest snakes in the world belong to the python and boa families, according to the Natural History Museum. The biggest family depends on whether you are measuring these reptiles by weight or length.
One person wrote: “Wow ah big snake or dinosaur.” “That looks like some world record s**t,” another person said. Someone else recalled: “I can verify that Dominica has gigantic snakes.. I went to school there and once on the way to the airport, the shuttle I was in encountered a snake in the middle of the road that when stretched out covered the entire width of the road.. biggest snake I had ever seen.” “There’s snakes out there this big??” A fourth person asked, unable to believe snakes could grow to that size.
