Its color pattern is quite distinctive, and it has three distinct dark stripes on its head. In addition to its impressive size, this snake has no venom and doesn’t have distinct fangs or teeth.

The world’s largest snakes are thought to be boa constrictors. They are about 13 feet long at their largest but generally grow to be in the six-to-ten foot range. This makes them formidable pets.

Southern Africa and southern Kenya are home to the African rock python species of snake. It weighs 99 pounds and is between 14 and 16 feet long. Last year, a pet African rock python got out and suffocated two little boys. As bite marks were discovered all over the boy’s neck, it is believed that the snake attempted to swallow the child.

The African rock python has sharp teeth and triangular markings under its eyes. It is smaller than the Burmese python, but it can grow up to 20 feet long. This snake has a more aggressive nature than its Burmese cousin. Its body is covered in colored blotches and irregular stripes. Their head is marked with a dark brown or a buffy yellow spearhead.

The world’s tallest snake is a semi-aquatic species that lives in the rainforests of Southeast Asia. It can reach a length of around 20 feet and weigh more than 500 pounds. The Malay Peninsula was the site of the largest living specimen’s capture in 1937. Actually, when it was killed soon after the Second World War started, this king cobra had grown to a length of 5.71 metres. When threatened, this snake supposedly uses its size and ferocity to display them.
