    Images of a giant snake loaded onto a truck are making their rounds, with a story of a massive snake that killed 320 tourists and 125 divers in Egypt. It has been reported on several websites, but are the images and the story real?

    We believe it is a hoax.

    The story being circulated reads:

    AMAZING GIANT SNAKE . Found in the Red Sea that killed 320 tourists and 125 Egyptian diver, and has been the killed by a professional team of elite Egyptian scientists and qualified divers in Egypt. Names of scientists who participated in the process of catching the huge snake were: D. Karim Mohammed, d. Mohammed Sharif, d. Mr. Sea, d. Mahmoud students, d. Mazen Al-Rashidi. And the names of divers who participated in the process of catching the huge snake were: Ahmed leader, Abdullah Karim, fisherman Knight, Wael Mohammed, Mohammed Haridi, spears Alvajuma, Mahmoud Shafik, a full-Sharif. The Snake body has been transferred to in the Egypt morgue at Sharm El Sheikh international animal.

    The images appear to be either Photoshopped, or that of a real snake on a toy truck and photographed at close range giving the appearance of a large snake. The only available images are the 4 included in this article, and all of them are low resolution, making scrutiny of the photos difficult. Many believe the “soldier”

    Such a discovery would be headline news around the world, yet no major news organization has reported this snake or the associated killings as reported in the story. The only sites reporting this story are merely repeating the single report, without corroboration. Those who believe the photo point to the fact that Google will return several sites reporting this story. The problem is that all of these sites are merely referencing the lone story about the snake, and none of them are major, reputable news services. A few bloggers repeating a story verbatim is not sufficient proof as to the reliability of the report.

    Finally, not a single Egyptian news organization has reported this supposed massive creature and loss of life.

    There have been no follow-up stories or photos.

    A snake with a size as impossible as this.. is almost certainly impossible.

    it was just a hoax. Just a false story started via social networks after someone posted photos which were developed and exagrated via softwares to make the snake look so huge
