SNAPSHOT: It is a record! World’s longest anaconda uncovered in the Amazon
The world’s longest anaconda has been discovered in the Amazon jungle – and it measures in at a whopping 17 feet long. The huge reptile was uncovered during filming for new BBC documentaryTRIBES, PREDATORS AND ME. In the first episode, yesterday, presenter Gordon Buchanan joins a Waorani tribal family in Ecuador’s Amazon jungle as they searched for giant anacondas.
The tribe, who know this remote rainforest better than anyone else, teach Gordon their secrets for surviving here, using blow pipes and sharpened sticks to hunt monkeys and wild pigs. The tribe also believes the proven man-eater can hold the key to their future and has high spiritual importance to them.
