Largest ever Anaconda is captured in Ecuador (photos)

This massive, serpentine beast which is over 17ft doesn't only come from the family of the world's largest snakes. It is the largest ever captured. The capture of the Anaconda is part of a BBC documentary; Tribes, Predators and Me presented by Gordon Buchanan who lived alongside an indigenous Ecuadorian tribe, the Waorani, in the Amazon.

In the show, Buchanan joins a tribal family to hunt an Anaconda, the Amazon's most dangerous predator, the animal is a proven man-eater but the locals believe its capture and release is not only a sign of bravery but see the feat as a source of immense spiritual power.

There is also a scientific reason for the capture as the Waorani are losing their land to oil exploration - with scientists testing anacondas for the effects of oil pollution.

Buchanan lives alongside the indigenous people for two weeks learning their ways and how they have adapted to live alongside some of the world's most dangerous animals including Jaguars.

Linda, a snake cannot weigh 17ft...that is that length not weight.

Charles Chukwuka said...

LMAO! Hollywood sha. That movie made us believe that Anancondas could grow to the size of trains. But that's still a pretty immense snake. You wouldn't fancy meeting that thing on a camping trip...

bukola shobajo said...

17ft is not a measure of weight, it's a measure for distance and 17ft is just about 5 metres which isnt that long for that specie of snakes, so it cannot be the correct information. Linda pls get the facts right before posting.
