Apparently this one was bigger than that as it swallowed an adult woman. I have seen python bigger than that is Bangkok suburbs.

Some months ago coming back from a night out, the taxi driver suddenly stopped as he drove down the soi to my home - there was what had to be a 3m long python crossing the road in front of us. A couple of months later I was in a taxi on the way home, and turning into my soi the driver suddenly said "Oh remember the last time, there was that big snake!"... out of the literally thousands of cabs in Bangkok, I had randomly caught the same guy!

The snake was probably a reticulated python, a Broghammerus or Malayopython reticulatus. These are a confirmed man eater when they get to certain sizes, though as with most man eaters, they are scarcely a statistical threat.
