 Anaconda 

Anaconda (scientific name: Eunectes) is a genus of snakes from the pedigree family, known for its large size, reaching a length of 6 meters in the normal situation, and there are some mutations that reached 10 meters.

This snake is native to South America (a well-developed anaconda), and an undeveloped anaconda lives in Australia.

The difference between them is that the Australian anaconda lays eggs and incubates its eggs in a nest. As for the Amazon anaconda, its eggs remain inside its stomach, and the young hatch inside its mother’s belly, then it comes out, so the Amazon anaconda appears as if it is giving birth, not ovulating.


geographical presence

Anacondas are found in tropical South America in Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela as far south as Argentina.


nutrition

Anacondas are non-venomous squeezing snakes that kill their prey by squeezing and squeezing the body until its bones crumble and its veins explode. This is thanks to its long body and distinctive skeleton, as its vertebrae range from 200 to 400 vertebrae that help it move, squeeze and swim. And she can swallow a whole adult man, and when there is another prey, she throws what is in her stomach and devours the prey.

Anacondas have rows of regular teeth, unlike venomous snakes that have fangs instead.


Types of anaconda

green anaconda

The green anaconda snake is considered the largest snake in the world. Other snakes may live longer, but there is no snake in the world comparable to the anaconda in weight. The largest of its kind can grow to a length of 8 meters and a weight of 200 kilograms.

The anaconda's eyes and nostrils are located at the top of its head so that it can breathe and see its prey while diving underwater. In order to find its way, the diameter of the anaconda snake, which is considered a water snake, reaches 30 centimeters, and the female is considered larger than the male. Although the anaconda may eat its food once or twice a year, it devours its prey alive, starting with the head, and because its jaws are separated from each other. Snakes can devour prey much larger than them.

Although the green anaconda is famous for being a human predator, it rarely attacks humans. Anacondas kill their prey by force of squeezing, not by poison, and catching one of them requires at least two people and a lot of skill. The important thing when catching them is not to allow them to form a ring around you.

yellow anaconda

Its skin is distinguished by its golden color mixed with black, which is smaller than the green anaconda. Its length at puberty may range from 3 to 4 meters, and some of them reach a maximum size of 4.6 meters, and its weight is between 35 and 55 kg, and it can live for a period between 15 and 20 years, and sometimes It may reach a maximum age of 23 years.

It may live in rivers or swamps, where it feeds on fish and young crocodiles due to its swimming skill. It also feeds on pigs, deer, and bird eggs.


Anaconda World Heritage

The anaconda participated in the movie “Anaconda”, which is a very scary horror movie that portrays one of the most powerful animals in nature. In this movie, it was imagined that the anaconda was nine meters wide and had a different face from the face of the real anaconda to look like a human-eating animal. This movie was produced in 1997, directed by Louis Llosa and starring Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube and Jon Voight.
