If you suddenly saw a giant snake underwater? Have you ever had an experience like this? But there are reports from Brazil about two people who had such an experience. Bartolomeo Bove is a talanted diver. One day in July, he was diving with his friend Juca Yagarape on the Formoso River in Brazil. At this point, they met a giant green anaconda about 23 feet (7 m) long and about weighing 198 pounds (90 kg) lying at the bottom of the river.
As shown in the video Bartolomeo Bove took his camera and was ready to videotape this giant snake face to face. This time the giant snake saw the camera, looked closely at the camera, and shook its tongue. Moments later, the snake swam away from the camera. If you want to see more scenes of this giant anaconda, please follow Bove.
He could take some amazing videos of this giant anaconda. He says that these giant anacondas are not as aggressive as they seem in his video. He also says that there is a misconception among people that they are invasive animals.
“The rivers and the bodies of water around the Bonito area are the only places in South America here anacondas can be found in crystal clear waters, and therefore diving with them is possible.”.
“As shown in the footage, the anaconda swims calm and peaceful completely indifferent to our presence. Sometimes she comes closer, curious about my camera, licking the lens.”
“The behavior of the anaconda debunks the myth that it is an aggressive and violent creature that can endanger people’s lives,” Bowe went on to explain.
A green anaconda can grow up, about 30 feet (9.1 m) in length and weigh up to about 550 pounds (250 kg). These king snakes are the largest snakes in the world. Of course, this anaconda is just as great as some of the movies have created.
They can move very fast. They suffocate and kill their prey, and because of their ability to widen their jaws, they can swallow even large prey, more than themselves.
