The Reticulated Python (Python reticulatus) is the world's longest snake. They can grow to be 28.5 feet long. Usually, they eat mammals and birds, but they will occasionally eat civets, monkeys, pigs, and even Malayan Sun Bears. The Reticulated Python has also been known to swallow people. I've actually been able to find a good photograph of a large female Reticulated Python swallowing a man. Another photograph I found did not sound as accurate. The snake was reported to have swallowed the victim feet first. The photo told a different story. The ribs of the man-eater were towards the man's head. Obviously, this investigater needs to learn about snake anatomy.
