Anaconda Green behavior

The Green Anaconda, often referred to as the "King of Snakes", is shrouded in more controversy and rumor than any other snake. Legends of monstrous Green Anacondas 50 or more feet long have fascinated people for centuries. In truth, this majestic snake rarely reaches over 25 feet in length, but tales still continue to intrigue and fascinate.

Though not the longest snake in the world, the Green Anaconda is the most massive. Because of their bulk, large Green Anacondas are much more mobile in the water than on land and generally spend most of their time in or near water. They inhabit bodies of water as large as rivers and those as small as temporary pools. Green Anacondas are ambush predators that typically wait for unsuspecting prey to come within their striking range. Anacondas are constrictors, but there is debate over the most common cause of death of their prey. Traditionally it was thought that the prey is suffocated; but many now believe that the blood vessels are constricted and lack of circulation to and from the heart is the direct cause of death.
