Hoop Snake
This creature gets its name from its tendency to clamp its tail in its jaws and then roll after their prey like a wheel. At the last moment, the serpent will straighten itself and impale its victim with its venomous tail. The only way to escape the attack is to hide behind a tree … and should the tree receive the strike, it would die immediately from the venom. The creature appeared in tales related by lumberjacks … but it was first described in 1784. That letter noted that while the snake attacked in its wheel-like form … it would slither away from aggressors like any other serpent. Sightings of this cryptid have been reported from the Minnesota-Wisconsin border to British Columbia. They’ve also been seen in Australia. Did you know there’s a $10,000 reward for the first person who can produce verifiable evidence of a Hoop Snake?

Real-Life Flying Snakes
We’ve told you about a couple of flying snake cryptids … But there is no dispute about this the existence of this particular serpent … it truly does exist, and are found in Southeast Asia. How do they fly? They manage to push themselves vertically up trees by pushing against the rough bark. Once the animal reaches the end of a tree branch, it can lean forward and thrust its body away from the tree. It creates a type of ‘pseudo concave wing’ by pulling in its stomach and flaring out its ribs. Maintaining a serpentine undulation as it stabilizes its direction … enables the serpent to glide through the air.

Sucuriju Gigante (Soo-koo-ree-hoo HEE-gahn-tay)
Its name means, roughly, ‘giant anaconda’ … and sightings of this massive constrictor snake have been reported in South America since at least the mid-19th century … and persisted into the 1970s. Measuring some 131 feet long (40 meters) and weighing up to 5 tons, this immense creature is said to have made its home in the Amazon River since ancient times … and uses its size to control its territory. Despite that size, the beast has proven to be surprisingly elusive … with no definitive proof of its existence actually discovered. Yet. unconfirmed stories declare that explorers have encountered anacondas measuring anywhere from 33 feet to around 150 feet … (10m to 46m) leading some cryptozoologists to speculate the creature might be a descendant of Gigantophis (gih-GAN-tah-fiss … or JIE-gan-tah-fiss). That prehistoric snake could grow more than 30 feet long (9m) and lived during the Eocene period that ended some 34 million years ago.

Nabau (NAH-bhow)
This creature has been spotted by local tribes in Borneo, and is said to reach over 100 feet long!
The Nabau (NAH-bhow) is a python-like serpent with a head resembling a dragon and has seven nostrils. In folk tales, it is considered a god that possesses preternatural powers. Its scales are claimed to bestow a person with incredible strength …It can transmogrify itself into the shapes of various animals ... and simply seeing the creature is said to bring good fortune. If that’s so, then a lot of good fortune was imparted in 2009. That’s when a huge, serpent-like creature was seen in Borneo’s Baleh (BAH-luh) River. The picture was taken from a helicopter by a relief worker monitoring flood regions. A second picture shows a serpentine creature in the waters of a remote village. Locals say it’s the same creature in both photos, but taken in different parts of the river. While skeptics have dismissed the picture as the result of digital manipulation, others say it’s actually the ancient Nabau (NAH-bhow). What do you think?

We just spoke earlier about Sucuriju Gigante (Soo-koo-ree-hoo HEE-gahn-tay) …. But could this be the MEGAconda? Reports of giant anacondas date back to the European colonization of South America. Sightings of monster snakes measuring in excess of 160 feet (50 meters) were claimed by colonists. Stories of hunters killing serpents from over 33 feet long (10.3 meters) to more than 147 feet (45 meters) were reported through the 20th century. That has led to many long and winding debates about the creatures amongst cryptozoologists. Could these giant snake cryptids reach proportions as seen in the picture? Well, Titanoboa lived some 60 million years ago and is regarded as the largest snake that ever crawled the earth. Depending on the source, that creature reached lengths approaching 50 feet (15 meters), and weighed more than a ton (907 kilograms). Is it possible the Megaconda is an offshoot of Titanoboa that managed to survive for millions of years to the present day?

50 feet seems possible, but 100 feet? I don't believe that could exist... even during prehistoric times, that didn't exist. Sounds like people are either exaggerating or just don't know how long a foot is.

All I'm saying,I know the bible Torah and other ancient manuscripts,so knew people and dragons(dinosaurs),serpents(giant lizards) lived at the same time 👍. Remember Yah took away the serpents legs and bound it to drag itself on it's belly.. the truth and our history has always been in front of our faces, it's all true.
