In fact, Python in HK can reach up to 15-18 feet long, possibly 20 feet. There are at least two confirmed cases. One happened in 1982, a baby cow was engulfed by a 15-feet, 150 lb giant python in Sai Kung. Another recent case is a 16-18 feet long python caught in Yuen Long rural area in Nov 2007. You can search youtube to view the related video.
九月時從茅平落梅子林途中見, 叫紅脖頸游蛇. 4 呎 x 3 寸 直徑左右, 當天日落, 趕住下山, 當時牠躺在石級咬著青蛙, 所以我幾乎踩到牠們. 定神之後拍出來.

又在大潭區將到野豬徑的小路上﹐剛行過一處兩面有樹林的地方﹐就聽到後面沙沙聲﹐回頭看見一條約手臂粗(起碼也有直徑五英寸吧)的大蛇身﹐沒見到頭﹐沒有大肚子﹐慢條斯理的向山低的一方樹林鑽過去﹐歷約十秒鐘。從速度看﹐我看到不連頭前段的後半部蛇身﹐也有十二到十五英尺﹐全長不得而知。野豬徑的英文名是 Boa Vista﹐果然有典故。

Please say it. I won't blush. I may have incorrectly associated boa with boa snakes. Please let us know.
Also let's hear more about big snake encounters.
Last November I went hiking through the penninsula to Yuen Kok in southeast Lamma Island along the ridge top starting from Shum Wan along a path I newly created. About one third of the way, after passing the large boulder platform (with huge rocks )I suddenly noticed my right foot was just about to step on a large snake coil of diameter of about two feet. The thickness is about that of a man's arm. From the black spots on its scales, I thought it must be a python (dai mong shea). I was lucky that I lifted my right foot though I thought I had touched it with my sole. I retreated immediately. After about five minutes I proceeded and found that it had gone with almost no sound through the bushes. It is the first time I encounted such a large snake in Hong Kong.
