How Do You Weigh a Giant Python?

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Weighing a giant python turns out to be quite a chore at a reptile park in Sydney, Australia.

Handlers first struggled to pull the 21-foot-long snake out of its exhibit.

Then the handlers stood on regular bathroom scales while holding the python, affectionately named “Atomic Betty.”

The weights of the handlers were subtracted from the total.  After doing the math, handlers were able to determine that Atomic Betty tips the scales at a svelte 306 pounds.

Zookeepers say a steady diet of goats leads to Betty’s impressive size and girth.
