Default Giant Borneo 'Snake' spotted?

Looks quite genuine to me?



http://o.aolcdn.com/art/gat/asylum/3...-monsters.html


Villagers in a Borneo jungle who live in fear of a mythical, 100-foot-long snake, say that recently unearthed photos prove the monster exists.

The two photographs, one taken from a helicopter by a team monitoring flood regions, and the other from a the river bank of a village, allegedly show the enormous animal winding its way along a river.

Alas, critics are not satisfied, and have pointed out that the pictures could easily have been doctored using photo editing software. The aerial shot of the snake also looks similar to the wake left behind by a speed boat. But believers are adamant that the animal exists.

What do you think? Take a look at the pictures here.

In local legend the monster snake, known as the Nabau, is thought to have the head of a dragon, seven nostrils and the ability to change shape at will.

But before you scoff remember that only last month scientists discovered the remains of an snake that was 45 feet long and could swallow an animal the size of a cow.

(Admittedly that particular species died out more than 60 million years ago and lived in South America, not South East Asia. But who's to say one didn't make it out to Borneo and hibernate for a few hundred thousand centuries?)

looks pretty fake to me too, like the stuff you often find on the pravda site

but i'm not ruling out that there could be giants we're simply not aware of.

well, here's a true giant:





i think that's an anaconda, but not sure- anacondas thrive in swamps, this seems to be a dry terrain ^.









^^ that is the reticulated python, the longest snake in the world- found in the jungles of south-east asia. also a very reclusive, shy creature (never mind the pic above, lol).

locals have claimed that it can grow upto 40-50 feet in length, and that it is fully capable of consuming an adult human (like the anaconda).

and though there has been no record of a snake measuring that size (yet), the possibility of a giant lurking somewhere in the rainforests has not been ruled out.

Mars have giant what? I'm not aware of a jungle named Mars, but I've heard the Anazon have record size snakes including snakes that leave trails as wide as a truck's tire.

i just sold two brb's here

i think the pic is fake tbh as something so large would have been caught a long time ago tbh .but i'm sure there must be a few large 40 footers leaking about though.

That is a fascinating fact but... I still don't think they could eat me. There's gotta be a size limit to the 'adult human's they can swallow.

"This photo and story originally appeared in the People’s Daily, which serves as the official newspaper for the Communist Party in China. It stated that the snake was one of two that were awakened by local workers digging up huge mounds of earth in preparation for a new road that was to cut through the forest that lay just outside of Gupiing city in the Chinese province of Jiangxi.

While one snake, which was reported to be 55-feet long and weigh approximately 300kg, became a casualty of the bulldozers digging, another one, described as a gold boa, appeared supposedly bearing its fangs, causing the workers to flee in terror.

The driver of the bulldozer, however, is said to have been paralyzed with fear. When the workers returned, he was so sick he could barely move, and eventually died at the hospital, presumably of a heart attack."
