      Another species in the orang-utan house

      I've a feeling this may be the epic turkey she was fed that took so long to digest they had to put a sign on the exhibit to reassure people that she wasn't ill! Lovely snake.

      Certain looks big enough for it to be the Turkey!

      She's awesome, never seen a snake that big (except pictures of Fluffy). They have stunning markings too.

      I haven't seen the episode of Strachan's show which features the python, but I was told by someone that Cotswold's is bigger and that there is one in private hands which is possibly larger.

      Not sure how true that is though? Zoogiraffe do you know?
    • James27
      It's more than likely that there's a larger one in private hands, would be really hard to get the actual figures, especially with reptiles.

      I have seen some large Reticulated Pythons at Australia zoo the girth on one female was about the size of my waist, I heard she was 24ft?

      Is this not the smaller Python of the two?
