Be that as it may, this rare footage is still nothing but jaw-dropping: a massive anaconda that stops traffic.
The massive anaconda is seen making its way across a busy highway with four lanes. This reptile quite literally stops traffic, and people get out of their cars to document this rare sight.
Anacondas, particularly the green anaconda, are renowned for being among the largest snakes globally.
They may not be the longest (the reticulated python holds that record) but in terms of weight and girth, anacondas are unmatched.
A fully grown green anaconda can exceed 29 feet in length, weigh over 550 pounds, and measure more than 12 inches in diameter.
Anacondas exhibit indeterminate growth, meaning they grow throughout their lives, although the growth rate slows significantly as they age.
This problem-solving skill, coupled with their ability to adapt to different environments, indicates a level of intelligence that is often overlooked.
