Snakes are such fascinating and frightening creatures that people have developed all kinds of wrong ideas about them. One of these is that there are huge, terrifying snakes si;;ty and sevently feet long! The truth is that snakes never grow to quito that length, (hough some are certainly big enough, the largest known snake is the regal python, w.ich may have a length of merely 33 to 35 feet! (Measure rhat out in your .living room and It'll give you an idea of how long this really is.) This creature is found in the Malay peninsula, Burma, Indo-China, and the Philippine Islands. , The second longest snake is the Anaconda, which lives in tropical South America and may reach a length of about 25 feet. That's no "shot-tie" either! 'Next comes the Indian python, found in India and the Malay Peninsula, which may grow to 22 to 25 feet. The African rock python is about the same length. The Diamond python of Australia and New Guinea, often grows to 20 or 21 feet. Then we come to a snake that for some reason is believed by many people to be the world's largest. It's the boa constrictor, and the most it ever measures Is about 16 feet. This nasty creature makes its home in Southern Mexico, Central and South America. The King cobra, another unpleasant member of the snake iumily, reaches a maximum length of alrout 18 feet. Now what about the United States? What are the largest snakes we're ever likely to run into here? The longest of these is the Eastern diumonback rattlesnake, and it only grows to a length of 8 to 9 feet. The black chicken. snake bull snake, gopher snake — al found in the United States, —also grow only to maximum lengths o about 8 feet. By the way, while the rega! python is the longest snake known, it is not the heaviest. The anaconda, which is shorter, may weigh as much as 360 pounds which is about 100 pounds heavier than the heaviest phthon known. The longest poisonous snake is the king cobra, and the ^heaviest poisonous snake Is the Eastern diamondback rattlesnake. FUN TIME The Kiddle Box 1. When is a sailor not a sailor? 2.
