    Article: Face to face with a green anaconda

    Not the greatest or most informative article, but I thought it was worth a share.

    Dang it, the pool is closed for the season now & you're making me miss my laps!!!

    Nice video but not a swim I'd want to take...they were lucky she was curious ("playful") & not hungry. Great seeing such a serpent in her own world though...
    thanks for sharing!
    Many friends in low places...

    Cool story. I enjoyed that video.

    I never really thought about a snake using itís tongue underwater. That shows just how amazing their tongues and Jacobsonís organ is. For such a primitive animal that seems like a pretty advanced sensory system.
    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    You know, I thought that looked strange too. So it obviously works either way, in air or in water....how cool is that?

    Cool Video.... Awesome Snake,

    just out of curiosity, you can see when the humans breathe, obviously the snake isn't

    how long can a big snake like that hold it's breath and not breathe while underwater?

    Well, according to Google: (I'll have to take their word for it)
    10 minutes



    Anacondas are the world's largest snakes and they can hold their breath up to 10 minutes underwater, according to Cobras.org.Dec 21, 2016

    I've been thinking about this....
    ...and I think I'd do it....IF there were properly trained people in place to save my butt if it came to it. But the animal couldn't be harmed. I can't justify harming an snake for being a snake, especially since I'm on it's turf.

    That puts rescuers in a bad spot, I'm afraid. If a snake like that tried to constrict you underwater, they'd have few options for helping you, & I'm betting the snake would
    be the loser, as in nearly all conflicts with humans. So for the sake of the snakes, I'm guessing we won't be watching your video any time soon? Just as well, IMO.

    Nope, i don't foresee a way they could guarantee the animal wouldn't be hurt, so no need to hold your breath waiting for the video

    This video is a great rebuttal to the stupid "eaten by an anaconda" program.
