Anacondas are four species of aquatic boa snakes. One of these species, the Green Anaconda, is the largest boa and one of the largest snakes in the world. Anacondas are not venomous and instead use their size and power to overcome prey, which include land animals such as deer, wild pig, sheep, dogs, capybaras, tapirs, turtles and even jaguars, as well as large rodents and birds. They also eat fish and reptiles in the water. They swallow their prey whole by unhinging their jaws and have even been known to attack humans, though this is rare and typically they will retreat from people and only attack in self defense.
Based on weight the green anaconda is the world’s largest snake. They can reach lengths anywhere from 20 to 35 feet long and can weigh up to 550 pounds. Because of their large size they are able to kill and consume some large animals. Some animals that a green anaconda will prey on are; birds, turtles, wild pigs, deer, capybara, caimans, and jaguars. After a large meal a green anaconda can go months before its next meal.
