There are several snakes that can open their mouths wide enough to swallow an adult human, Burmese Pythons, Reticulated Pythons, Anacondas. It would take them a while to get past the shoulders but it can be done. I've seen 5 foot boas eat 8 pound rabbits at my work. So a 25 foot Retic wouldn't have too much trouble.

Totally agree with you as rumours and myths still rule. A very large constrictor can spoil your day but is unlikely to be able to eat an adult human due to the shoulders.
