100ft-long ‘snake’ Photographed in Borneo

Nabau cruising along the Baleh River in Kapit?

This is great, probably just a retouched photo, but it was allegedly taken by a member of a disaster team monitoring flood regions by helicopter. It is said to be Nabau, a giant snake the size of a drum and more than 100 feet in length!

The photo claims to shows Nabau cruising along the Baleh River in Kapit. Local villages who live along the river are convinced the creature exists, and they say the recent photos show it freely moves around.

People who have studied the photograph have dismissed suggestions that it’s a log. Others have suggested it’s a speedboat, but this to has been dismissed because of the twisting wake.

The most common accusation is that the photo has simply been manipulated on a computer.

The photo comes at an interesting time for giant ‘monster’ snakes, as earlier this month fossilised remains of  Titanoboa, the world’s largest snake were announced.

Real or Fake? A lot of people think it is real, locals genuinely believe it exists and I’m sure this will spark renewed interest in searching for it over the coming year. I for one am tempted to have a look for it!

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.

  1. If someone was taking a picture of something that incredibly large you can bet they’d get in for a closeup on it. No way this is real.

    • hye im from borneo but i got story about the big snake…
      i dont know it true or not… coz at first … once people go hunting and see the stem moss … when he was suddenly cut stems of blood out of the way …. so he sticks to the end of the rod and rod ends 2 looks very wide and there are no trees and dried leaves too … feel like a serpent head .. if this is true … so he has to do with snakes 100 feet …
