Green anacondas are known for devouring caimans in their native South American habitat, so while the alligator may have little concern of being on the python’s menu, the anaconda could be a different story.

Neonates are around 70–80 cm (2.3–2.6 ft) long and receive no parental care. [3] More typical mature specimens reportedly can range up to 5 m (16.4 ft), with adult females, with a mean length of about 4.6 m (15.1 ft), being generally much larger than the males, which average around 3 m (9.8 ft). When prey passes by or stops to drink, the anaconda strikes (without eating or swallowing it) and coils around it with its body. Periodista Digital. While larger sizes provide the benefit of a larger number of offspring per clutch, the breeding frequency of the individuals reduces with size, indicating that a point exists at which the advantage of a larger clutch size is negated by the female no longer being able to breed. Juvenile anacondas feed on prey such as small birds and juvenile caiman that are typically 40-70 grams in size. Follow 909. [24], Primarily aquatic, they eat a wide variety of prey, almost anything they can manage to overpower, including fish, birds, a variety of mammals, and other reptiles. Early descriptions of the green anaconda by different authors variously referred to the general color like brown, glaucous, green, or gray. [16] The minimum size of breeding anacondas in a survey of 780 individuals was 2.1 m (6.9 ft) in snout-vent length, indicating that maximum size attained by anacondas following this pattern would be 5.3 m (17.4 ft) in snout-vent length. Anaconda, the biggest snake in the world, queen of the Amazon; vs. Jaguar, the biggest wild cat of the New World. [20] Because of the masculine gender of Eunectes, the feminine Latin specific name murina was changed to murinus. The remote location of the snake's habitat has historically made locating, capturing, and returning specimens difficult. Assuming both are average mature individuals. [13], The skin of one specimen, stretched to 10 m (32.8 ft), has been preserved in the Instituto Butantan in São Paulo and is reported to have come from an anaconda of 7.6 m (24.9 ft) in length.

A green anaconda attacked the six-foot long caiman, in Pantanal, Brazil after finding it in the swamps of tropical wetland and the reptile later died. [3] However, most anacondas are captured from the llanos, which is more accessible to humans and has smaller prey available, while the rainforest, which is much less explored and has more plentiful large prey, may be home to larger snakes.[3][17]. In August 2014, West Midlands Safari Park announced that on 12 August 2014 a female green anaconda, which was being kept with another female anaconda, through parthenogenesis had given birth to three young.[30][31].

The anaconda can be seen wrapping itself around the crocodile, trying to suffocate it and drag it down under the water. "And at that point, the caiman then bit into the snake. Another possibility is that the female releases an airborne stimulant. To prove the point of overestimating, in Guyana in 1937, zoologist Alpheus Hyatt Verrill asked the expedition team he was with to estimate the length of a large, curled-up anaconda on a rock. He added: "It all happened in around eight minutes. When this caiman approaches, the anaconda unleashes a swift surprise attack, catching the croc off-guard.

The green anaconda, which some reports described as being 29ft long, fought the crocodile in the swamps of tropical wetland where both species dwell. [24], However, when no male anacondas are available to provide offspring, facultative parthenogenesis is possible. During mating, males make use of their spurs to arouse the female. Observational reports of animals which were not captured are even more dubious, as even trained scientists often substantially overestimate the size of anacondas prior to capture. In the famous 10th edition of Systema Naturae of 1758, Carl Linnaeus cited descriptions by Albertus Seba and by Laurens Theodorus Gronovius to erect the distinct species murina of his new genus Boa, which contained eight other species, including Boa constrictor. Mating is followed by a gestation period of six to seven months. Some also feed on carrion and conspecifics, usually inside or around water. [9] Reports of anacondas 11–12 m (35–40 ft) or even longer also exist, but such claims must be regarded with caution, as no specimens of such lengths have ever been deposited in a museum and hard evidence is lacking. The eyes are set high on the head, allowing the snake to see out of the water while swimming without exposing its body.

Numerous estimates and second-hand accounts abound, but are generally considered unreliable. I think eventually the caiman died.". Large anacondas can go weeks to months without food after eating a large meal, because of their low metabolism. The first specimens of Boa murina were of immature individuals from 75 to 90 cm (2.5 to 3.0 ft) in length. This theory is supported by the observation of females that remain motionless, while many males move towards them from all directions. It is the heaviest and one of the longest known extant snake species. Two Amazon reptiles trying to devour each other find themselves in a deadlock and now are struggling for survival. Should they survive, they grow rapidly until they reach sexual maturity in their first few years, after which their rate of growth continues at a slower pace. [19] In 1830, Johann Georg Wagler erected the separate genus Eunectes for Linnaeus's Boa murina after more and larger specimens were known and described. If you had to think of two animals that you really wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of, anacondas and crocodiles would most likely be up there.

If an anaconda is large enough, it may attack larger mammals, including deer. While green anacondas are the heaviest snakes in the world, and they are quite adept and deadly in the water, this one is no match for two hungry felines, especially since jaguars have been known to take down crocodilians such as caimans!

While the exact reason for this is not understood, scientists cite several possibilities, including the dramatic sexual dimorphism in the species, and the possibility that a female anaconda requires additional food intake after breeding to sustain the long period of gestation. The nearby male simply provides the opportunistic female a ready source of nutrition. Although more than one male may not be necessary, this results in odd clusters referred to as "breeding balls", in which up to 12 males wrap around the same female and attempt to copulate.

Predation of caimans by anacondas has been reported before (Wehekind 1955. They tend to float beneath the surface of the water with their snouts above the surface. Many males can often find the same female. The term "anaconda" often refers to this species, though the term could also apply to other members of the genus Eunectes.
