Holy snake! Take a good look at this serpent folks. The yellow anaconda, known in Brazil as ‘sucuri,’ is believed to be at least 17 feet long was filmed swimming next to a Brazilian fisherman boat. The largest confirmed Giant Anaconda on record came in at 28 feet long.
In the video of the event posted on YouTube, the snake is shown to have a bloated mid-section, presumably from an animal it had eaten earlier.
These three people fishing on the Santa Maria River in Brazil’s Mato Grosso do Sul state were just fined $600 for tormenting a giant anaconda in Brazil. According to authorities, the trio are facing a jail sentence of up to 18 months.
