Largest Python caught

Postby trevisc » Mon Dec 29, 2003 2:56 pm

Indonesian villagers claim to have captured a python that is almost 49.21 feet (15 meters) long and weighs nearly 992.07 pounds (450 kilograms), a local official said Monday.


the thing that struck me funniest about this was the "Almost 49.21 feelt" and the "nearly 992.07" you usually don't use those words when you are going out 2 decimal places!

that's a big ol snake!

Nice catch! Nearly 992.07, eh? Sounds a whole lot more impressive than plain old 992.06 to me... :-D
