The Green Anaconda is the biggest snake in the world with unverified measurements of about 34 feet, although the longest confirmed specimens measure 25 feet long and weigh 550 pounds. Numerous claims of huge anacondas 50-60 feet long also exist but these have never been confirmed. The green anaconda is olive green with black spots. The green anaconda is a good swimmer and on land it moves slowly. The green anaconda spends hours of the day resting on branches or in wet ponds. When the night comes the green anaconda begins to hunt its prey, but it never hunts in flock. The green anaconda is dangerous because of its poison.
