KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Slithering in a haunted house in Kansas City's West Bottoms could be the world's largest snake living in captivity. It is now just weeks away be the Guinness Book of World Records recognizing Medusa the Snake's title.
It took 15 people to hold the 25-foot-long, over 300-pound snake for photo op. She eats a 40 pound animal about once a week but could easily eat something over 100 pounds.
"Fear is just a lack of understanding. I have no fear. I understand that she can kill me. I've been wrapped up and put unconscious by a reticulated python that was only 18 feet long. I understand the repercussions, but that’s no reason to fear. That car you drove in has killed more people than anything else in the world. But you're not scared when you put your keys in it, are you?"
You can catch a glimpse of Medusa at the Edge of Hell, Kansas City's oldest haunted house that has been emulated across the country. It is one of three haunted houses open for business now in the West Bottoms.
