Here are some facts about anaconda:
Anacondas are semiaquatic snakes found in tropical South America. They are some of the largest snakes in the world and are known for their swimming ability. “Anaconda” is the common name for the genus Eunectes, a genus of boa. Eunectes means “good swimmer” in Greek.
There are four recognized species of anaconda, according to Bill Heyborne, a herpetologist and professor of biology at Southern Utah University. They are the green anaconda, the yellow or Paraguayan anaconda, the dark-spotted anaconda and the Beni or Bolivian anaconda. “They can be differentiated from one another genetically, but also based on their size and geographic range,” Heyborne said.
Heyborne said that when most people say “anaconda,” they are actually referring to the green anaconda, the largest of the four species. The green anaconda is the heaviest snake in the world and one of the longest.
According to the Jacksonville Zoo, anacondas feature prominently in South American myths, sometimes appearing as shape shifters, as the creator of the water, as vicious human-eaters, or as magical, spiritual beings with healing properties.
There have also been reports of anacondas reaching lengths of 40, 50 and 100 feet (12, 15 and 30 meters) — far longer than anything scientifically verified. These reports have given rise to the Giant Anaconda myth, popularized in the early 20th century by explorers and colonists, according to Cryptozoology A to Z.
