Measured this snake with Tyrone last week thursday and we worked it out to be 420mm in length which is definitely the largest I've seen ;)

Ok, so what exactly does a 420mm centipede eater look like? Hint-hint, nudge-nudge... Post some pics please!

Anything to reference it with? Maybe a matchbox or a cell phone or something?
