The Biggest World's Python Found in Indonesia

A python found in Indonesia is 14.85m (49ft) long and has a maximum body circumference of 85cm (almost three feet) and weighs 447kg (70 stone, 3lbs).
It was captured by a 58-year-old python expert from east Java who was summoned to Jambi after locals, who stumbled upon it while foraging for wood, were too afraid to approach it.
The expert reportedly needed 65 helpers to snare the python and the blessing of tribal leaders as pythons are regarded as deities by many locals.
The python is proving to be a major attraction for the zoo, as about 700 people visit the Curugsewu zoo every day to admire the new but rather lazy star.
