Introduction

Anacondas are one of the most fearsome snakes out there in the world and they are very hard to trace. Anacondas are really quiet creatures and leave no trail. They spend a lot of time in the dark waters of swamps and rivers in the tropical areas of South America. Anacondas live in swamps and lakes but you will also find a lot of Anacondas in the tropical regions of South America. Anacondas are known to spend most of their lives in slow moving rivers, flooded forests and swamps. They are shy and self sufficient creatures that are hardly seen. Once an Anaconda is fully grown it is capable of eating animals such as buffalos, zebras and crocodiles and even humans.

Under water Anacondas have their eyes and nasal openings on top of their heads. This helps the Anaconda to remain under water hidden whilst ambushing and waiting for possible prey. Anacondas are a member of the constrictor family of reptiles. Anacondas always capture prey by using their non venomous fangs then they coil around their victim and go for the kill by squeezing the life out of the prey and then the Anaconda will swallow the prey entirely. They can go for weeks and months after a large meal.

Anacondas can weigh the weights like 200 pounds or even more. Female Anacondas are larger than male Anacondas. Anacondas don’t lay eggs but they can give birth to forty or more young Anacondas. The newly young baby Anacondas are two feet long and are capable of hunting and swimming straight away. Anacondas have a life span of about 10 years in the wild but are facing threat due to loss of natural habitat. Anacondas are mostly found in areas like swamps, rivers and pools of the Amazon forest. This fascinating creature likes to spend time in water rather than on land. Anacondas like hunting at night mostly on rivers and swamps. A large number of Anacondas can be found in the tropical rainforests.

A lot of the Anaconda species are facing trouble because they are seriously affected by the loss of their natural habitat. Another disadvantage to this amazing creature is the threat which comes from people. Anacondas are being hunted and captured for their skin. The natural habitat of Anacondas is mainly grasslands, forests, rivers, lakes and swamps. Anacondas are mostly spotted tropical forests, narrow hollows. Anacondas prefer mainly swampy and calm water surfaces this is because the Anaconda likes to lay immersed instead of spending time in fast flowing water surfaces.

Conclusion

Anacondas are with out doubt fascinating creatures and the scariest snake in the world. They have been a lot of reports and claims that many people have recorded and measured about thirty feet long or even more longer anacondas, but none have been proved or accepted by scientists.
