    1. 1. ANACONDAS The deadly giant....
    2. 2. INTRODUCTION... The anaconda is a large, aquatic water snake of giant sizes. They are non- venomous snakes. They are the biggest snake known on
    3. 3. ORIGIN... The name Anaconda is supposedly originated from the Tamil word meaning ‘elephant killer’, which was originally used for pythons located in Sri Lanka. Local names for the Anaconda include a Spanish word “Matatoro”, which means “Bull Killer”; and the Native Americans terms for the Anaconda are Sucuri, Yakumama and Jiboia. Anacondas are also referred to as: Genus Eunectes: Any anaconda is in this group of Water Snakes. Eunectes Notaeus: A.k.a the yellow spotted anaconda. Eunectes Deschauenseei: a.k.a the dark spotted anaconda Eunectes Murinus: The common anaconda Giant Anaconda: This is a mysterious & mystical snake of enormous sizes found in South America Water Boa: Anacondas are a part of the Boa family so they can be called this, or even just “Boa”
    4. 4. HABITAT... Anacondas mostly live by rivers, pools or swamps in the Amazon Rainforest Range. They are known to feel at home in water as they are well adapted to swimming and hunting in the water; where they are at at their best. They tend to drift in the water, only slightly lifting their head once in a while to breathe. Anacondas can also be spotted in the Guiana’s & throughout the regions of South America & the Orinoco Basins. There is word going around that anacondas can be located in the East of the Andes where as the Yellow Anaconda can (or has) been spotted in the south of
    5. 5. DIET.... An Anaconda living in the wild has a diet which consists of: deer, wild pigs, ocelot, birds, other snakes, tapirs, sheep, dogs and large rodents like agouti, paca and capybara. The larger the Anaconda, the bigger the prey it can take out. Once, 26 foot Anaconda was reported to have attacked and consumed a 6-and-a-half-foot caiman(species of crocodile). Some anacondas have been reported to be a length of 30 feet; any animal that size could take out anything, even jaguars and humans! They have deadly strength and accuracy. On land they strike at their prey and strangle them to death with their lean powerful muscles. In water, they are best at hunting. They sneak up on their prey and entrap it with their powerful jaws; slowly enwrapping it and drowning it to death. From that point onwards, the anaconda slowly consumes the prey.
    6. 6. PREDATORS... The anaconda has two predators. Anacondas tend to be cannibals and any smaller anaconda will make a good snack for a larger anaconda. Humans are the other predator. Humans kill anacondas in two ways; deforestation of
    7. 7. LIFE SPAN... Anacondas bear live young and tend to live from a range of 10-30 years, but this has not been fully confirmed. The anaconda grows quite quickly in
    8. 8. ADAPTIONS... Anacondas are the biggest snake to record so far; something to be afraid of. They have long and powerful bodies in order to strangle their prey successfully. The bigger the anaconda, the more capable it is of fasting for months - even years! Even one captive anaconda fasted for two years without any food. They are nocturnal so they have the advantage at night with being naturally stealthy and able to swim. They are adapted to live in the water; their eyes and nostrils are on the top of the head so all of it’s body can be submerged underwater. They are great swimmers as they are strong and swift. Once one has gotten ahold of you, you’re good as dead. The young are usually born two feet long, and within two hours they can hunt, swim and care for themselves. They grow big but once one has reached sexual maturity, they grow at a slower rate. A reticulated python may grow
    9. 9. ADAPTIONS... Each anaconda The anacondas has it’s own nostril and unique pattern, eyes are on the which top of it’s head camouflages it so more of it’s body can be
    10. 10. ADAPTIONS... The anaconda has a powerful jaw to get a good hold onto its prey so it can enwrap it. The anaconda has powerful muscles The young are to constrict it’s born two feet so prey. in an hour a snake-let can hunt and fend for
