Natural Habitat
Green Anaconda - Fact Sheet - Central Pets.com

The Green Anaconda (Eunectes murinus) is considered by many to be the largest snake in the world. These snakes may reach lengths of over 29 feet. There are many exaggerated stories and legends about Anacondas being much longer, but they have never been confirmed. There are descriptions by travelers of Anacondas up to 140' long.

Green Anaconda - Fact Sheet - Nashvillezoo.org

The name "Anaconda" comes from the Sri Lankan language, Sinhalese, which originally probably referred to the Reticulated python. No one is sure how this name came to represent a South American snake, unless these two snakes, Anaconda and Python, were mistaken as the same species. Both snakes are swimmers and two of the largest snakes in the world.

Green anacondas are found throughout tropical South America. They are most commonly seen east of the Andes, mainly through the Amazon and Orinoco river basins, from Colombia and Venezuela to Northern Bolivia and South Central Brazil. Green anacondas are often found in swamps and slow moving rivers.

Captive Care
Green Anaconda - Care - Grave Studios

Green Anacondas are large heavy-bodied snakes. The Green Anaconda is dark green in color with black oval patches on its back. This drab pattern blends the snake in well with the wet, dense vegetations of its habitat. The sides have similar spots with yellow centers.

Green Anaconda - Care - NERD

As South American rainforests and floodplains are cleared for agriculture, ranching and development this snake loses much of its habitat. While an uncommon animal through much of its range during the wet season (November - March), high concentrations of anacondas may occur during the breeding & wet (April - October) seasons. Green anacondas are CITES Appendix II animals, and widely used for skins, "medicines" and various other novelties in South American markets.

More Info.
Green Anaconda - Life history & conservation - Jesus Rivas

The green anaconda is the largest snake in the world. Although famous, very little is known about its life history. Until I began my research, no field studies had been carried out on the species. Due to the skin trade and habitat degradation its numbers have declined in places where they are not protected. In an effort to protect the species I, with a team of friends and colleages, began the Anaconda Project in 1992, with the aim to learn the basic aspects of the anaconda’s biology in order to create guidelines for its protection and possible management.
