The 2011 Guinness World Records book shows that Fluffy, the reticulated python from the Columbus Zoo in Ohio, is the longest snake in custody, at 24 ft. (7.3m).

Unfortunately Fluffy died on October, 26, 2010. She is greatly missed. She now has a daughter at the zoo, named Hanna, after a contest announced in December 2010.

Fluffy, a reticulated python, python reticulates, is the world's largest exhibited snake. Fluffy is over 24 feet long, 300 pounds, and 15 years old. Fluffy's waist is the size of a watermelon. Fluffy is a sweet snake with a wonderful disposition.

Pythons catch an animal with their teeth and then constrict around it to suffocate it.

Females incubate their eggs by coiling their body around them. They keep them at a constant 89 C. They even shiver to maintain the right temperature.

Fluffy was supposed to make an airplane trip, but it was cancelled after the movie, Snakes on a Plane, came out. She is pretty human, though. When she travels, they take her luggage.

Jack Hannah of the Columbus zoo has taken Fluffy on the David Letterman show. The zoo is located in Columbus, Ohio. Resembles Harry Potter Voldemort's Nagini

According to Guinness World Records 2005, the world's longest snake was a reticulated python, which was 32 ft. 9.5 in. It was killed in Celebes, Indonesia, in 1912. Fluffy came to the zoo recently and the signs shown in the video (.42 & .49) give the information about her.
