21003-70512  Sulawesi Reticulated python (Python reticulatus saputrai). An Indonesian Island form, and most likely the largest of all reticulated python - in 1912 one shot in Sulawesi measured a jaw-dropping 10m. The longest snake living in captivity today is also a reticulated python measuring 7.67m. Sulawesi reticulated python are arguably the most beautifully marked as well. Dorsal pattern is a tight diamond pattern from head to tail. Similarly marked animals are sometimes found in the Phillipines.
