    They had at least two Retics that were not in the wild that were measured over 25ft in length. Not including all the snakes that were listed then some scientist said their measurment were faulse. Since I was in High School the Gueness Book of records has shrank the weight and length of these snakes threw out the years saying the length and size are unverifiable. When some of them were measured by the Guiness Book of records, measures them themselves. At that time the longest Python was a Reticulated Python that was 38ft. The longest Anaconda was 36 ft. Their are a lot of fake stuff out their saying they get 50 to over 100ft but those are not provable claims. Other than the Titanaboa I do not see any snake that can break the barrier of over 50ft. I have seen a few videos of snakes that are over 20ft, but it is very rare. The longest snake I now of in captivity was measured by the Guiness Book of records and was barely over 30 ft. Also have seen a lot of fakes claiming the snakes are way longer and bigger than what they are or just flat out photoshopped. Have also noticed this in Marine Biology too with sharks.
