VIDEO: Biggest Snake EVER (195 Ft.) Was Found

August 20, 2015 | Thursday

A monstrous snake nearly the size of a football field is captured on film as it rears back to attack a helicopter flying by, but could anything that big really exist?

Humanity is familiar with some pretty big snakes, both in person and in the fossil records, and sometimes through photographic evidence by reliable witnesses.

During World War Two, Belgian fighter ace and squadron leader Remy Van Lierd rose to the rank of Colonel in the British Royal Air Force, and received the Distinguished Flying Cross medal of valor, after shooting down six enemy aircraft and forty four V-1 Flying Bombs. After the war he was put in command of the Kamina Air Base, in the Katanga region of what was then The Belgian Congo.

His reputation and spatial recognition abilities are impeccable, which means we must give careful consideration to this incredible report.

One day in Africa in 1959, on the way back to the airbase from a helicopter mission, Colonel Lierd was astounded to see a massive snake winding it's way along the terrain below.

He circled around for a better look and had one of his flight crew take a series of photographs. As he descended to about 500 feet altitude, the gigantic snake took notice, and reared back as though ready to strike at the helicopter if it dared to come within range.

By his own estimate, Colonel Lierd guesses that the snake must have been a minimum of 50 feet in length, with a triangular shaped jaw about two to three feet wide. In his own words, “It could have easily eaten up a man!”

Keep in mind that a reticulated python is the longest snake ever measured alive at 33 feet or 10 meters in length. The longest measured known extinct snake is the Titanaboa, which was 42 ft or about 13 meters in length.


After “countless reports from the Kamina area of giant snakes”, the original photos were sent to CIA Captain Lorenzo W. Burrows, director of the National Photographic Interpretation Center with some further analysis of the photo.
