11 metre(s)
Egypt ()
The longest prehistoric snake was the python-like Gigantophis garstini, which inhabited what is now Egypt about 38 million years ago. Parts of a spinal column and a small piece of jaw discovered at Fayum in the Western Desert indicate a length of about 11 m. (36 ft). This is 1 m. (3 ft 3 in) longer than the present-day longest snake
