Anacondas are the largest snakes
in the world and even though Reticulated Pythons do grow to longer
lengths, the Anacondas have a wider girth and are stronger animals.
It would be like comparing a giraffe to an elephant, sure the
giraffe is a taller animal, but the elephant is the bigger creature.
This large female was over
5 meters long (about 18 feet) and it took 5 of us to carry her
out of the jungle into an open area. I had the task of being
the first one to dive in and grab it by the head. It was so large
and strong that I had to use both hands just to get a grip on
it. These constrictors has a mouth full of rear facing sharp
teeth that they use to grab and secure their prey, then they
coil around it and constrict it to death. The meal is then swallowed
whole and although this snake probably couldn't eat a human,
it is more than powerful enough to kill
