Green Anaconda

The evil Green snake
The Green Anaconda is the largest snake in the world, weighing more than 550 pounds and growing over a foot in diameter. They continue to grow throughout their entire lives, with the females growing significantly larger, and like all snakes, Anacondas are cold-blooded. A member of the boa family, this non-venomous, semi-aquatic carnivore lives in swamps, marshes and slow-moving streams in the tropical rain forests of South America. The Anaconda’s eyes and nostrils are on top of their head, allowing them to breathe easily in the water so that they can stalk their prey while almost completely submerged. They will squeeze an animal until it asphyxiates, and since they have no fangs, swallow it whole. Anacondas like to eat wild pigs, deer, caimans, capybaras, birds, turtles, fish, rodents and even jaguars.

Strengths
Despite their enormous size, Green Anacondas are sleek and stealthy in water—this trait, coupled with their glistening skin, makes them very charismatic. Their jaws are attached by stretchy ligaments that enable these fierce creatures to swallow animals even wider than themselves. After such a large meal, they can go weeks or months without food.

Weaknesses
Green Anacondas are very cumbersome on land.

Best Animal to Adapt With
The Anaconda is one of the strongest animals around, able to slowly choke it’s prey with its’ massive body. Sadly though, it come up short in both charisma and wisdom, which means that it’s perfect adaptation would occur with the sexy Jaguar and worldly Sloth.

Enemies
Large mammals, reptiles and birds like to hunt baby Anacondas, but few predators are daring enough to go against full-grown ones. While they do not typically hunt humans, an encounter with an Anaconda can be extremely dangerous.

Increasing Their Survival Rate
Anacondas are not considered at risk, but they are affected by habitat loss.
