Green Anaconda Size report

snakeWhen it comes to the largest snakes in the world, the Amazon Anaconda is undoubtedly unsurpassed. The largest of these is the Amazonian boa, which can grow up to 10 meters in length and weigh 250 kilograms, as thick as an adult's waist.

Green anaconda (scientific name: Eunotes murinus) is the largest anaconda in the world today, inhabiting the Amazon tropical rainforest. Anacondas are naturally water-loving and usually live in shallow muddy waters and prey on waterfowl, turtles, capybara, caiman, tapir, etc. Sometimes a green anaconda even swallows caiman up to 2.5 meters long.

When most people say "anaconda," they refer to the green anaconda, the largest of the four species. The green anaconda is the heaviest snake globally and one of the longest. They are known for their swimming ability. The following article introduces more details about green anaconda sizes.

Green Anaconda Discription

Anacondas are semiaquatic snakes found in tropical South America. There are four recognized anaconda species: green anaconda, yellow or Paraguayan anaconda, dark-spotted anaconda, and Beni or Bolivian anaconda. They can be differentiated from one another genetically and based on their size and geographic range. This section will introduce green anaconda.

Natural Habitat

The green anacondas are found in the rainforests of South America in countries such as Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Columbia, and Venezuela. Due to the size and weight of this snake, they are quite sluggish moving over land and spend much of their time in the water. Anacondas that live in areas that flood seasonally must find water during the dry season or burrow into the mud.

Appearance Features

The green anacondas have thick necks, and their heads are narrow lengthwise but broad. They are dark olive green in color with dark brown or black blotches all over their body. Their body is also covered in yellow "speckling." They have two sets of top teeth and one set of bottom teeth that point backward to allow them to grip onto prey efficiently. The mouth of the green anaconda can be opened up and down to about 180 degrees, the 4 rows of teeth can move independently, without a chin, the 2 rows of teeth in the middle of the upper palate can move up and down, which is conducive to swallowing prey.

Green Anaconda Size Details

The green anaconda can weigh almost 100kg, although the vast majority won't weigh anywhere near this, and they can grow to over 15ft in length, but most females top out at about 12ft. Males are generally smaller, measuring approximately 8ft in length. The green anaconda can live around 10 years when left to live in the wild. In captivity, it can live up to 30 years, as long as in proper caring.

Full-grown adult females have few predators due to their huge size. The media has dramatically exaggerated this snake as a man-eating beast. However, while a green anaconda can injure seriously and even kill a human, verified reports of attacks are rare, and there are no documented cases of a green anaconda eating a man.

There is no doubt that the weight and length are pretty difficult to measure. It is hard to stretch out a captive green anaconda, not to mention potentially dangerous for the snake. People who see green anacondas in the wild are likely to overestimate their length due to fear. All the above measurements are average sizes.
