When you think of deadly snakes, you often think of venomous boa species. The green anaconda, or the common anaconda, is non-venomous boa species. However, even though its venom is not deadly, anaconda is one of the deadliest snakes.

The anaconda is the heaviest and one of the longest known snake species that can prey on animals, and even humans. The anaconda is a primarily aquatic species. They eat wide variety of prey, including fish, birds, mammals, and other reptiles. However, they can consume even larger prey like deer, tapirs, jaguars, and even humans. Cannibalism is also common among anacondas, usually the larger female consuming a smaller male.

In this documentary, researchers go into the jungles of Venezuela, searching for man-eating anacondas. The name anaconda applies to a group of snakes, but it mostly applies to green anaconda. The specie is usually found in tropical South America.
