The indigenous people reported that the animal was enjoying a sunny day on the banks of the Araguaia River. The size of the anaconda surprised residents who had never seen such a large snake in an open area.
Antecir Wajumani, professor of Natural Sciences, was returning to the place by canoe and recorded the animal, which was at ease in its habitat. “I was impressed by the size, I had to stop and film it”, said the indigenous man.
Snakes live most of the time in the water of rivers and lakes and feed on the most varied types of animals, such as fish, birds and mammals.
