The anaconda: the largest snake in the world

If you see a snake crossing the road, it is better to give it priority. On this video transmitted to DUMATO, the anaconda is named Eunectes murinus. It is recognizable by the dark spots on its back and its greenish colour. It’s the biggest snake in the world.

Anacondas are not poisonous, but they are still dangerous. Adults can measure between 5 and 8 meters long. Females are larger and weigh over 300 kilos. They have sharp teeth with which they capture their prey and surround it to crush its bones and swallow it more easily. The anaconda feeds on mammals and fish. Some attacks against humans have been recorded.

In general, the anaconda digests for several hours, sometimes  even weeks, depending on the size of the prey.
