While the Green Anaconda (Eunectes murinus) is possibly not the longest snake in the world (that’s probably the Reticulated Python), it could be considered the largest snake in the world (when one considers that it is the snake with the largest girth and weight). The Green is one of 4 Anaconda species, all of which are found in South America. Anacondas are in the Boa family (Boidae).

HH:  No wonder there are so many myths about the mighty Anaconda.
