Giant new snake species identified in the Amazon


PREMO Member
A team of scientists on location with a film crew in the remote Amazon has uncovered a previously undocumented species of giant anaconda.

"The indigenous hunters took us into the jungle on a 10-day expedition to search for these snakes, which they consider sacred.

"We paddled canoes down the river system and were lucky enough to find several anacondas lurking in the shallows, lying in wait for prey.

"The size of these magnificent creatures was incredible -- one female anaconda we encountered measured an astounding 6.3 metres long.
