Largest captive snake

Reticulated python Medusa, has made the record books for being the longest snake ever to live in captivityMedusa's primary diet consists of a combination of rabbits, hogs and deer, served to her every two weeks.

Staff knows her as the sloppiest eater within attraction, as she's been known to accidentally bite into herself instead of her dinner.

Representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records have verified her new title and she will now join the book for 2013.

Medusa's trainer Larry Elgar claims he isn't intimidated by the monster python.

He said: 'They've actually cut people out of them, they are man eaters.

'Fear is just a lack of understanding. I have no fear. I understand that she can kill me. I've been wrapped up and put unconscious by a reticulated python that was only 18 feet long.

'I understand the repercussions, but that's no reason to fear. That car you drove in has killed more people than anything else in the world.

Medusa measures a staggering 25ft 2 in longBut you're not scared when you put your keys in it, are you?'

Mr Edgar said he bought the eight-year-old snake as a baby and she's still growing.

He said then ' his snake was 24 inches long, as big as my finger.'

Medusa was brought to the haunted house as a 24 inches long baby

The massive python scooped the record from 24ft long Fluffy

To keep Medusa fed, she is given a combination of rabbits, hogs and deer every two weeks Medusa has bumped Fluffy, a reticulated python, off the top spot.

At 24ft long she held the record for longest snake living in captivity until she died at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Powell, Ohio, in October 2010.
