Longest Snake in the World

Longest Snakein the World

If you want to know the record holder for the longest snake in the world, then you're in the right place. The longest snake in the world which was confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records was called Fluffy from Columbus Zoo, Ohio, the longest snake in captivity, at 24ft (7.3m) and 300 pounds. It is a type of gigantic reticulated python. There are claims of larger snakes reaching up to 50 feet in length, but unfortunately unverified.

Another species of large snakes is Anacondas. An anaconda is a large, non-venomous snake found in tropical South America. Although the name actually applies to a group of snakes, it is often used to refer only to one species in particular, the common or green anaconda, Eunectes murinus, which is one of the largest snakes in the world. Lengths of 50-60 feet have been reported for this species but such extremes lack verification and too add lack of large prey to support a super-large snake. The two only real reliable claims that can be found describe measured anacondas ranging from 26-34 feet although these remain unverified.

The Box Jellyfish is also considered to be the most poisonous animal. It has causes thousands of deaths. It’s toxins attack the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. And the worst part of it is that jelly box venom is so overpoweringly painful, that human victims go in shock, drown or die of heart failure before even reaching shore. Survivors experience pain weeks after the contact with box jellies. Box jellyfish are distinguished by their cube-shaped medusae. Box jellyfish are known for the extremely potent venom produced by some species. Chironex fleckeri, Carukia barnesi and Malo kingi are among the most venomous creatures in the world. Stings from these and a few other species in the class are extremely painful and sometimes fatal to humans. Once a tentacle of the box jellyfish adheres to skin, it pumps nematocysts with venom into the skin, causing the sting and agonizing pain.
