Giant Snake discovered while diving. Swiss Diver Franco Banfi found an massive anaconda underwater in a river in Brazil. Anaconda vs Human Diver... turns out to be a stale mate.
Banfi discovered the 26 foot long giant anaconda while diving in the rivers of Mato Grosso a region in Brazil. While these anacondas are common in the wildlife of Brazil, one of this size is not. These predators will often hide just under the water's surface of river banks similar to crocodiles and alligators and wait for an unsuspecting animal to come and take a drink before striking it's prey.
Franco was lucky that this enormous snake had recently fed on a Capybara and wasn't interested in making the Swiss diver it's next meal.
Banfi was quoted saying...
"At the first moment it's scary because you don't know the animal and everybody says it's dangerous. But after a while you understand that nothing happens if you respect the snake.
I have never been so close to a snake like this before. But I think a small poisonous snake is more scary than a big one. At least you can see the anacondas clearly and know what they're doing."
