Description

The anaconda isn't quite the world's longest snake (that honour belongs to the reticulated python), but it is by far the heaviest. These massive reptiles can tip the scales at over 90 kilograms-- that's about as much as 20 medium sized bowling balls!

These stocky snakes are packed with powerful muscles that are used to constrict their prey. Anacondas will literally squeeze smaller animals to death before gulping them down whole. So the next time a friend or family member catches you up in a great big bear hug, be thankful it's not a great big anaconda hug instead!
