If there’s one thing you need to know about anacondas, it’s that they don’t like to be messed with.
Unfortunately, not everyone heeds that advice.
Just last week we posted a story about a math teacher in French Guyana who captured a 17-foot-long anaconda in his backyard after it had eaten his neighbour’s dog.
And now comes a new video, this time of a group of Brazilians who come across one of these massive serpents on a riverbank. Instead of leaving the massive predator alone, these guys chase it down, much to the opposition of the female passenger on the tiny boat.
Anacondas are not small snakes. They can grow up to 30 feet in length, weigh more than 500 pounds and measure more than 12 inches in diameter.
The yellow anaconda in this video doesn’t appear to be 30 feet long, but it isn’t exactly a baby, either. And its distended stomach – it appears to have been found fairly soon after a substantial meal – only make the sight of the great beast even more frightening.
