Anaconda is the greater snake of the world. Data not verified
they do to arrive their length to the twenty-five meters; but the
scientific they doubt that snakes of that size be able
To exist really. The biggest
part of the
herpetólogos they agree that the most most long snake
that exists in the world is the pitón real of Asia, and the one that it it follows in length is the anaconda or "great boa aquatic"
Of America south. But all the herpetólogos they are also
in agreement that the anaconda is a greater snake, therefore is
more gross than its congénere Asian: six meters of
Anaconda they weigh more than eight of pitón. Seven meters of
Anaconda they weigh more or except the same thing that nine of pitón. Of
any way, the anaconda it is more more long, larger and more
heavy of the snakes of the New World, and is the monster
Most supreme of the Amazonas.
anaconda lives inside the water, what helps it to sobrellevar
its enormous structure; but also passes a great deal of time in
Ground and in the trees. Can remain under the water
during long periods and, some times, sleeps curled in
The fund of a river or a poza. As the cocodrilo, remains
submerged in the water with only the head outside, until a
Unwary animal comes to drink to the edge.
anaconda adult lives on birds, deers, small mamíferos And cocodrilos. An anaconda is able with every facility to devour
A caimán of two meters of long. This snake liquidates to
its victims being curled around them and pressing the
Rings until die. This method of constricción not
suffocates the victim necessarily; more well, what
It obtains is to break him the heart by compression. The snake
it hears the beaten cardiaco of its prey and, when is rolled up
around the body of this, coordinates its squeezes with the
I pump of the heart of its victim, pressing each time more
strong and stronger until the heart is weakened and the victim
Dies. Then it to bepiente desarticula its mandíbulas and
It devours. By means of this process the bone maxilar remains
desarticulado, only maintained by an elastic girdle, and the
snake can devour a piece of meat a great deal larger
That the contour of its pescuezo. The muscular contractions
digestive they are so powerful, that is able oírse how, inside
Of the snake, they go being triturados the bones of their prey.
Digestive process can last an entire month. It ingerido by
the animal forms a lump in its stomach, that destroys the
Smoothness of its lines. Once it has eaten, retires to
to sleep and rare time moves until digests what engulló and
It returns to feel hunger.
Anaconda is found very to flavor in the fund of the rivers. In
Ground the anaconda is not as mobile as in the water.
They elapse two minutes and medium before a snake of
eight meters remove out of the water its hundred fifty kilograms and
Drag them to the beach. And stas snakes, not they are poisonous and, al the same as all the ofidios, they are
animal poiquilotermos, that is to say, that not they regulate their
internal temperature; this is the main difference with the
fowls and the mamíferos, that yes they can carry out this process and
they are calls of "hot blood" By this reason,
the anacondas they pass several hours al sun or to the shadow, of
agreement to the temperature environment, to modify their Corporal temperature. In times
templates or cold, Hibernate or they are found in state of lethargy.
boa constrictora is not, far from it, as large as the
anaconda, and in contrast with the anaconda, which is of a color
Green desvaído and negruzco, the boa is a beautiful snake. With
a size that oscillates among the three and the five meters of
long, the boa is of color cinnamon, brown dark or black; the
same colors of the trunks or of the branches of the trees by
The ones that slides. The boa is, ordinarily, a snake
Mansa, as opposedded to the irritable anaconda. Nevertheless, both
they have a great deal in common: they are constrictoras and not poisonous; both
they can be inside] water and they are good nadadoras (although the
Boa prefers to remain in ground). The boa, as the anaconda,
it possesses a ligamento elastic in the maxilares that permits it
To devour greater animals that the diameter of its throat. Is able
To live during months without being fed. Both snakes itself
They worry that its children survive, after born.
The boa is a nocturnal animal and is
Qualified to hunt, in case of need, with light very tenue.
Its eyes have pupilas similar to the of the cats and their
lips possess detectores thermal that they help it to locate
Animal of hot blood.
The boa constrictora, the second in size

boa esmeralda arborícola (or boa green arborícola), is one of
The most most beautiful inhabitants of the forest. Of red color al

It passes all its life in the trees and can come to measure almost

a ball or compact mass, and pleases it to rest hanging of a
branch, leaving that hang the half of the body of each side, for
