In spite of this, this sloth who crawls across an anaconda (one of the world’s largest snakes!) manages to get out of the situation alive.
Anacondas, belonging to the boa family, are known for their immense size and strength.
Boa constrictors can exert a constriction pressure of 6 to 12 pounds per square inch (psi), which is strong enough to stop the circulation of their prey and cause death!
Actually, sloths are not typical prey for anacondas.
In the video we witness a sloth, with its characteristically slow movements, approaching a massive anaconda (basically in slow motion, of course.)
Surprisingly, the anaconda, known for its lethal constriction and formidable size, recoils instead of attacking. The story has a happy ending, but keep us on the edge of our seats nonetheless.
