Longest snake in captivity dies

COLUMBUS, OH (NBC) - Fluffy, the longest snake living in captivity, has died.

Ohio's Columbus Zoo and Aquarium said workers found the python dead on Wednesday from an apparent tumor.

At 24 feet, Fluffy was about the length of a moving van and as thick as a telephone pole.

Fluffy was 18-years-old.

The snake held the Guinness world record for length.
