Got to the image. That's not a boa. That's a reticulated python. The image even says huge python. The world's longest ever recorded snake in captivity was a 27 foot reticulated python. A boa constrictor does NOT get that big, unless you count the anaconda.

But this. A boa constrictor imperator.



Will get to MAYBE 10 feet.. If it's a large female. 14 or so has been recorded, extremely rarely and at an astounding age of at least 30 years old. Average is 7-9 feet.

Now these:





Are specifically the largest snakes you'll ever find. The anaconda, the burmese python, and the reticulated python. They reach an average of 18 feet, but have been known to get larger. 27 feet was the longest ever seen.

The difference is like an arrowana vs. an arapaima...both are big..But one is not as big as the other!

Miss-information and lack of experience? In my case at least that was the trick.

A month ago i believed the average life span to be 3 years for betta with the occasional reaching 5-6.

Oh, sorry. You probably didnt understand, but that was a joke. You see, a hydra is a mythical creature whom when you chop off its head, two grow in its place.

Most well cared for in big tank good diet dying of old age 7-8 years and extreme dedication 10 years the three thing probably makes them think they
provided good care get a new Betta and defend Betta myths seems like Americans believe these myths the most no offense studies show most americans might be too dumb for democracy and most believe dogs SOLD at pet stores are not from puppy mills also most Americans believe what business and government tell them no matter how absurd. Please do not be affended I am just speaking from studies and expierence.

Our vet refused our old yellow lab when she was dying said they only do check ups I am pretty sure it was a tumor she was in pain and could not move we had to put her down. Second did old chocolate lab was at a vet said she was okay she died a
Day later our current yellow lab does not have either vet.
