A few days ago a group of 15 scientists from the University of Queensland discovered the largest green anaconda in the world, in the middle of the Amazon. The investigators reported that this species of vibora belongs to the Eunectes akiyama species. This giant reptile weighs more than 200 kilograms and measures 8 metres, before I knew that no species of anaconda or green snake ever existed.

The discovery was made by the Dutch biologist, Freek Vonk, who decided to go with this animal. According to the studies, this animal is found in Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Trinidad, Guyana, Surinam and French Guiana. This investigation has been going on for more than 20 years and is based on the species that exist in South American countries. The green anaconda is one of the world’s largest snakes, according to information from the United Kingdom’s Natural History Museum.

What relationship does actor Will Smith have with the discovery of the world’s largest anaconda?

The Hollywood actor and producer, Will Smith, was a participant in this expedition, thanks to which his team captured the work of the investigators as part of a documentary that is being run by the National Geographic series, which takes the name Polo to Polo with Will Smith. The actor was invited by the group of investigators from the state university to a ten-day expedition to the Bameno region in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

Bryan Fry, professor of Toxicology at the aforementioned university, noted that the actor had no inconvenience in being in the investigation knowing that a man was bitten by a reptile. Another inconvenience that actors realize is that a giant anaconda can defecate a large amount of excrement at the moment it is manipulated to bring it to the studios, the professor noted that Smith is always available to deal with these situations.

Is the largest snake in the world poisonous?

Of course, with the information of the investigators they reported that in the same way the green anaconda is one of the most feared and deadly reptiles to be caught, and I don’t want to decide that it is a poisonous vibora. In the same way as he attacks and dominates his rival, he is very close to the mark, so he comes to his grip and the opener has to leave him alive. The nutrition of these reptiles is based on aquatic, terrestrial vertebrates such as fish, amphibians, aves and mammals.
