An enormous 33-feet-long anaconda was found by a group of construction workers on a construction site in Brazil.

The giant snake weighing 63 stone was discovered while the workers were carrying out a controlled explosion in the Cave of Altamira in the northern state of Para.

Frightened, they chained the reptile to a crane and hoisted it up.


As seen on the video, the anaconda is undoubtedly massive. Its body could have measure one meter in diameter.

Is this the largest snake on earth caught on cam?

However after the video was uploaded on YouTube, animal lovers criticized the workers for chaining the creature. It’s claimed that the workers killed the giant snake rather than leave it in its natural habitat but this has not been confirmed.

Somehow, others believed that the anaconda may have died during the explosion possibly due to falling debris, considering the snake’s head is rather flat in the video.

Meanwhile, The Guinness World Record for the longest snake in captivity is currently held by Medusa, a snake in Kansas City, US, which measures 25 feet and 2 inches long.
