The green anaconda is found east of the andes in south America in countries like Columbia, Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela and Brazil. They are partially aquatic found in streams, swamps and slow – moving waters in the amazon.
No snake matches the bulk and size of the green anaconda, although the reticulated python are known to grow longer. The green anaconda relies on their sense of smell and sight to locate their prey. One of the biggest rumours of snakes is that they eat humans, especially anacondas. This is completely false. They eat capybara, birds, monkeys and occasionally a caiman.
