In general the anaconda is the largest snake in the world, not because of its length, but because of its tremendous mass, or weight. But the giant anaconda could be the king of them all.
Giant snakes are not restricted to the jungles of Africa. Deep in the heart of the Amazon in South America, stories of colossal serpents have intrigued scientists and explorers for generations. In 1907, Lt. Colonel Percy Fawcett of the British Army was sent to the Amazon to mark boundaries between Brazil, Peru, and Venezuela. He was an officer in the Royal Engineers, and was known as a meticulous and thorough recorder of facts. What he saw while traveling up the Rio Negro River was an amazing sight. It was a giant snake that measured 62 feet from nose to tail. Fawcett was able to kill this anaconda with a shot to the back of the head, breaking the spine. His mistake he did not bring the specimen back but left it to rot in the jungle.
The natives call the giant anaconda "Sucuriju Gigante" and can only be found in the jungles of South America.
To date, the largest anaconda recorded was about 37 and 1/2 feet long. But could there be giants that have not been discovered yet.
Bernard Huevelmans, the father of cryptozoology reported an encounter with a giant anaconda. "What struck me was its enormous head, a triangle about 24 inches by 20 inches. The creature was well over 75 feet in length.
To find a specimen of the giant anaconda would be a great discovery. To capture one alive would be even greater. It is one of God's creatures He created for His pleasure. (Revelation 4:11).
