Bartolomeo Bove and his friend Juca Yagarape encountered a giant reptile while diving in the Formosa river in Brazil, in July. This giant green anaconda is 23 feet (7 meters) and weighs about 198 pounds, and these two friends came face to face with him.
In the video, we see the giant snake on is seen lying in the river bed. Upon seeing the camera, the reptile approaches the camera, flicks its tongue, and then swims away from the camera. Bove wants to get more footage and he follows the giant snake. And he could get some amazing footage of the giant reptile.
Bove says “that his video shows that anacondas are often misunderstood in terms of being aggressive; he says that anacondas are not as aggressive as they are thought to be.”
“The rivers and the bodies of water around the Bonito area are the only places in South America here anacondas can be found in crystal clear waters, and therefore diving with them is possible.” Explained Bove.
“As shown in the footage, the anaconda swims calm and peaceful completely indifferent to our presence. Sometimes she comes closer, curious about my camera, licking the lens.”
“The behavior of the anaconda debunks the myth that it is an aggressive and violent creature that can endanger people’s lives,” Bove added.
These amazing kingsnakes are as spectacular as they have been made in popular movies, and the green anaconda is one of the world’s largest snake species. He grows up to 550 pounds (250 kg) in weight and is about 30 feet (9.1 meters) in length.
They killing their prey by constricting its breathing, wrapping their giant and equally powerful bodies around the prey. They can swallow preys much larger than themselves thanks to their ability to unhinge their jaws.
