A group of villagers in indonesia are claiming to have caught the world’s biggest snake – a python nearly 50 feet in length, weighing over 70 stone. If the report is confirmed it will be the largest snake ever kept in captivity. It is currently being kept in a zoo on the island of Java. According to the Indonesian newspaper Republika, the snake, which was caught last year but only recently put on public display, eats three or four dogs a month.
