Personally i disbelieve this, one of the accounts of a 8.5 m kinghorni was from Hoser whos more of a tosser

They stated in another account it was 28ft 4 morelia kinghorni found in Gordonvale...however the international encyclopedia states it was found in new guinea,,,which rules out kinghorni....its too inconsistent to be true.

Personally i prefer to believe the rare account of the photos eric worrell took of the 23fter in his reptile park. theres photos to back this up

As for the the reported 28ft.
It was actually 25ft. It was recorded in the 1963 book on aussie snakes, however from what i was told when i tried to source this book was that it was a misprint. This was also confirmed by 3 other people aswell.

But i prefer to believe what i see with my eyes...and so i'll stick with the 23ft: victory:

Just confirmed my suspicions. Alot of the records for giant snakes are tall tales. I certainly dont believe there was a 33ft retic. We would have seen one in captivity by now if they could grow to those kind of sizes.

I was always under the impression if they are posted on the internet unless a copyright has been made before the images are used it does not matter? Posting pics on the net is giving people the right to use them? Personaly when I have posted pics in the past on the net I half expect at some point to use them without my permission, not something that really bothers me, a compliment if anything.
