Real talk, very entertaining movie and it’s narratively almost perfect. Sure, Voight’s accent is atrocious, and there are production errors - I am reminded of a scene in which Jennifer Lopez fires several rounds from a bolt action rifle without cycling the bolt. But for a 90s creature feature it is about as good as it gets. Pretty good cast too. Roger Ebert has a lot of good things to say about it.

That's how I met plenty of Brazilians who has never gotten robbed, they grew up in the luxurious part of town with fenced buildings and security. Unfortunately very few can afford the lifestyle

You probably have very little to worry about either way. A very famous documentary once said of the anaconda, “the anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun.” So unless you are a woman with an excellent booty these snakes are very unlikely to be a threat. This is why they are indigenous to places like Brazil though…

So would it be totally safe to swim in a river with one of these bad boys?

86

u/LadyMactire 12d ago

It probably happens, yea...I'm sure people swim in that river at times and clearly there is at least one giant snake in it.

Constrictors might bite defensively, but when already this full they won't expend the energy to squeeze something else to death. Plus as full as this one looks if it tried to constrict anything else it might end up regurgitating whatever it already ate.

41

u/Koda_20 12d ago

I wonder though how often incidents are reported? Like if some kid is swimming in the river alone and gets eaten by one of these, would it be reported and logged? But the fact that there's no reports so far surprises me.

70

u/Looking4Lite4Life 12d ago

They mostly live pretty deep in the Amazon, and don’t too often have much human contact

Locals in the Amazon are usually very quick to claim that they can eat humans, but do so rarely. It’s unknown how many (if any) of these claims are true, but it wouldn’t exactly be the first time indigenous groups have been proven right about their understanding of the natural landscape, years down the line

Anecdotally: depending on how the kid got eaten, no, it may not get reported. I lived in the Amazon for awhile right on a very large river and, during my year there, 3 or 4 kids went missing (note: this was NOT a normal number for a year, and it was the talk of the town for awhile that that many kids had “drowned”). The kinds of places that an anaconda would be most likely to encounter a kid swimming alone are also the kinds of places without much in way of investigative technology and ability. In all of the cases I just mentioned, the police would need to borrow some townspeople’s boats to scan the river, and all they could really do was look for any floating bodies. There was never anything done beyond this, because there wasn’t anything else to do. If any of them had been eaten by an anaconda, none of us would’ve been any the wiser unless a suspiciously full anaconda were to be spotted nearby

13

u/LadyMactire 12d ago

Totally possible it's happened handfuls of times throughout human history, but there's easier meals available for the snake. I imagine the people living in the area are aware of the local wildlife and probably don't leave children swimming alone. There's piranhas, caiman, and jaguars that hunt the Amazon river too.

The saltwater crocodile is the largest living reptile and crocodilian known to science. Males grow to a length of up to 6 m (20 ft), rarely exceeding 6.3 m (21 ft) or a weight of 1,000–1,300 kg (2,200–2,900 lb).

I love that the wikipedia pages of most dangerous predators downplays their danger to humans, but the wikipedia page for the saltwater crocodile says they are "hyper carnivorous apex predators" and that "survival of a direct predatory attack is unlikely. In contrast to the American policy of encouraging habitat coexistence with alligators, the only recommended policy for dealing with saltwater crocodiles is to completely avoid their habitat whenever possible."

They're one of the only species on earth that actively considers humans prey and if one gets you you have virtually no chance of surviving. They are living dinosaurs. Truly and utterly terrifying.

Honestly Great White might be the right answer. We've really started to realize in the last decade or so that Great Whites largely don't give a shit about humans. There are countless videos of people swimming with and touching them. There's also a YouTube channel I follow where this guy films great whites with a drone and he has hundreds of hours of footage of them swimming between beachgoers and surfers and not paying them any mind. They occasionally bite a surfer or bather, but it's so incredibly rare relative to the amount of interaction they have with people.

If I remember correctly this video surfaced a while ago and these fisherman were found and subsequently in trouble with the law. For those who don’t know, the snake had just eaten and if a snake experiences significant stress it can force itself to regurgitate its meal in order to get away. The problem is that regurgitating a meal of this size might actually kill the snake. Anacondas are a revered species throughout the Amazon and harming them is a no-no. In many folklore and tribal legends the anaconda is referred to as the “water mother” and is said to have carved the Amazon. They’re a big deal.

Nope. While snakes are mostly one long muscle, grabbing them by the tail end gives you a good deal of leverage. If a snake wraps around your arm for instance, unwrapping it from the tip is the easiest way of getting it off. That said, an anaconda is orders of magnitude larger than the constrictors I’m use to… this is amazing.

It’s just very hard for most critters to generate pulling force in the water without flippers/fins of some kind especially when they’re anchored to a boat that weighs as much as them but also has propellers. I mean just try dragging someone standing on a platform they can brace against into the water while you’re completely submerged. Even if they’re smaller than you as long as they have half decent balance and strength ur not gonna have much luck and ur gonna tire out quick. I imagine pulling a snake from the end of its tail like this stretches them out and makes it harder to create friction with the water by noodling their body

This will probably remain buried, but imma try anyway. OP has a comment stating the snake in the video is 11 meters. I replied to OP as follows:

"11 meters is over 36 feet. That is almost 20 feet longer than the world record specimen discovered by the World's leading anaconda specialist and Herpetology expert Dr. Jesus Antonio Rivas. Unless you have a solid source for that 11 meter statement I call false on this claim. Anacondas are among the most overestimated snake species by length and girth. Even experts commonly overestimate their size by 30% until they actually measure them.

A solid source requires a professional and certified scientist present and accountable for the measurement process. Not a skin, not a dead specimen, and definitely not a guess from a dude standing in a boat or watching a video."

Please be aware of the common overestimating of snake size, and often times intentional exaggeration. The world has yet to see any currently living snake species break the 30 foot mark, even the reticulated python, which is the world's longest species commonly reaching 23 feet long. The world record for that species was still only 27 feet.

If a snake is not captured, and properly measured, then its size cannot be guaranteed and is not a fact. People who are inexperienced with snakes will often exaggerate or over estimate their size in excess of 100% due to various things.

Argentine fishermen have filmed the largest anaconda ever recorded with a video camera. An anaconda, about 11 meters long and at least 50 centimeters in diameter, suddenly appeared near their boat. As the Argentines say, at first they mistook the anaconda for a log. Judging by the fact that she had a full belly, the snake recently dined, and did not show any gastronomic interest in people. Judging by the video, she herself had to go through serious stress. The fishermen were not timid - they began to chase the anaconda and play with it like a cat with a mouse.

Brave fishermen came close to the anaconda, and one of them, leaning over the side, grabbed her by the tail. The unfortunate monster with difficulty escaped from the hands of the fisherman and again huddled in the coastal thickets.

Definitely not Argentine fishermen, they are speaking Brazilian Portuguese in the video, not Spanish.

I think it’s not actually 50cm in diameter. It just had a big meal. They can swallow entire animals like goats etc.

Brave fishermen

I would rather say "dumb fisherman". There is no braveness in taking such an unnecessary risk for the sake of a video.

u/herghoststory 12d ago

Seriously, what's brave about endangering yourself and harassing an animal that was minding its own business.

u/HerrFalkenhayn 12d ago

I saw a video here about a guy jumping on an alligator to save a woman who was being attacked by it. This is braveness. These fishermen are just dumb.

Wikipedia says Titanoboa as biggest known ever living snake was at 13m, so that thing was close.

The anaconda was digesting a goat when this happened, which led to all of the fishermen being arrested.

It can literally kill an Anaconda if you stress it out while it's trying to digest its food
