Snakes (But No Planes)

So, I was learning about boa constrictors and I learned that no boa has ever grown large enough to eat a person.

Reticulated Pythons, on the other hand, can TOTALLY EAT PEOPLE.

They don’t.

BUT THEY COULD.

There have been cases of people getting killed by Reticulated Pythons, but there has been no evidence of humans actually being consumed.

Reticulated Pythons can be over 20 feet long (nearly 7 meters). The largest preserved specimen was actually so big it could not be preserved in alcohol or formaldehyde, (this was clearly in the days before things like The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living“.) so the snake was skinned and saved as a skeleton at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

*Awesome*!
