    Longest snake living in captivity dies in Ohio zoo | accessAtlanta

    Fluffy the reticulated python has died.

    A peice of Herp History is gone.

    What is arguably the most famous snake in the world has died at a Zoo in Ohio. Originally belonging to Oklahoma python breeder, Bob Clark, the reticulated python was sent to live at the Ohio zoo.
    I was fortunate enough to have met her and, for a retic, she is incredibly calm and tractable.
    She was a beautiful, amazing animal.

    Looks a lot like the one at the Buffalo Zoo. She's been laying eggs for years.

    At least she had a good life.

    Awee it is unfortunate she had to die, however I bet she lived a good life.

    But only 18? I was surprised, I thought snakes had lived longer than that in captivity before. :/

    I think it meant longest snake as in length of the animal, not time kept in captivity, but that confused me at first too, I saw this news on facebook a few days ago! Very sad..She was the first retic I saw pictures of!

    Such a shame she had to die. Considering they thought it was a tumor that killed her, I'm sure she had access to the best possible medical care.

    While this might be off-topic, considering it is not regarding Fluffy, but I also wanted to comment on the photo that you posted.....I think that the other snake in your photo (that you are holding) is absolutely gorgeous.
