By Associated Press

JAKARTA, Indonesia -- Indonesian villagers claim to have captured a python that is almost 49.21 feet long and weighs nearly 992.07 pounds, a local official said Monday.

If confirmed, it would be the largest snake ever kept in captivity.

Hundreds of people have flocked to see the snake at a primitive zoo in Curugsewu village on the country's main island of Java, Republika daily reported. It splashed two large pictures of the reptile across its back page.

Local government official Rachmat said the reticulated python measured 14.85 meters (49 feet) and weighed in at 447 kilograms (985 pounds).

The Guinness Book of World Records lists the longest ever captured snake to be 9.75 meters (32 feet). The heaviest -- a Burmese Python kept in Gurnee, Illinois -- weighs 182.76 kilograms (403 pounds), the book said on its Web site.

Rebublika said the snake, which was caught last year but only recently put on public display, eats three or four dogs a month.

Reticulated pythons are the world's longest snakes. They are capable of eating animals as large as sheep, and have been known to attack and consume humans.

The species is native to the swamps and jungles of Southeast Asia.

I want to see some pics, too!

that's one BIG f-in' snake!

I had one years ago, when I was over-seas,.....
it was about 11-12ft long and about 200-250 lbs.....
and it was too big to lift and carry!
if you tried it, he would just laff right at you!

this one's gotta be one really mean s.o.b., too,...
reticulated's get meaner and meaner, the older they get,.....
and they can live 50-100yrs!

Although, from these shots, it doesn't look more than 30 feet. Still freaking huge!!
