The largest snake in the world has found a new home in Abu Dhabi

A 7m long reticulated python simply called Super Snake and thought to be the largest snake in the world has a new home in Abu Dhabi.,

The huge snake weighs in at a mammoth 115kg. And eats ducks and rabbits for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

And the massive female snake now calls Abu Dhabi home after being snapped up (pun intended) by the National Aquarium in Abu Dhabi.

If you are a bit snake squeamish, probably best not to watch the clip below!

The Super Snake will be one of around 46,000 creatures on display at the huge Al Qana project in Rabdan. But there surely won’t be many bigger than this slithery slider.

Her species normally calls South and Southeast Asia home. But this non-venomous snake has been bred in captivity and now calls The National Aquarium’s Flooded Forest zone home.

You really wouldn’t want to get too close to Super Snake, however. While she’s not venomous, she has flexible jaw ligaments. Which mean she can dislocate her jaw and swallow prey much, much bigger than her mouth. And her coils of muscle will quickly strangle you to a very slow and gruesome death.

Yay!
