Green Anaconda

Big Meals Last a Long Time

Green anacondas can swallow big prey. They eat wading birds, pigs, deer, capybaras, and even river turtles. After a huge meal, an adult anaconda may go many months without food. One large female refused to eat for 26 months at Reptiland, before resuming her normal diet!

Big Snakes, Bigger Stories

Female green anacondas are the world’s heaviest snakes, sometimes exceeding 200 pounds. But, like all big snakes, their sizes are often exaggerated. Estimating the length or weight of snakes is difficult, even for experts. Stories of anacondas more than 20 feet long are almost always unreliable.
