While the huge reticulated python hasn't been officially measured by record keepers yet, it took six members of the Malaysian Civil Defence Force working together to capture the snake after it was found trapped at a construction site.
Currently, the biggest snake ever caught is 7.67 metres long and is kept in a haunted house in Kansas City, Missouri.
Weighing in at 250 kilograms (550 pounds), the snake was held in captivity for three days before dying after giving birth.
