    Is this possible? Photoshot or is it just the angle of the photo?

    The snake appears to be about 25 feet long, which is possible for anacondas and believable for a couple of other species.

    What kind of snake is it supposed to be?

    Here's what I do not understand. A snake that old lives its life in its habitat not bothering any humans but we humans must go in and kill it just to take pictures of it to show it off to everyone. Why not just leave the snake alone and try to take a picture of it moving its way through the jungle? Why kill something that has lived that long and hasn't done anything other than live?

    It looks about five, maybe six, meters in length (16.4-19.7 foot)

    To answer your question, it seems to be human nature to destroy stuff. Especially life.

    Those snakes eat people too. Who said they would not eat a human?

    How odd. You rail against humans for killing, yet that snake has been killing other animals all it's life. Why are you not railing against the snake for killing?

    It would if you came upon one. Those snakes can surely eat human babies and that is exactly what it would do.

    SG link said it was most likely a hoax, as boa's aren't common in that area.

    Dog eat human babies. Cars mash human babies. Mental illness beats human babies. Ignorance starves human babies.

    That snake was a thing of beauty and should have been captured and cared for. I would guess the first humans it ever encountered killed it. How sad

    Why even capture it?

    Sad? Yeah, you would have someone put the thing in prison for the rest of it's life. My guess is that the snake would have preferred death to a life in prison!

    Blindman, your name is aptly chosen ....you seem so blind to reality, preferring an idealistic approach to things where idealism is it's own defense. Take a look around you some time, idealism is nice for fairy tales, but one has to live with reality all the time.

    That's a funny statement coming from you.

    Should we have left it in its destroyed environment to starve to death. They are clearly loggers dragging the poor beast up for the camera. Its a shame the ignorant fools did not know the value of the beast.

    I agree with you that it may have been better to try and contain the snake and perhaps use it for research. Not that i know of any scientific advantage to that would be. Perhaps its internal organs can be used to some medical benefit (real medical benefit and not an imagined one), like curing a disease.
