Snakes always fascinate humans and are considered to be one of the scariest creatures of the world. Some of them are venomous that when injected can lead to a painful death. A few of them have other methods of killing their prey.
They wrap themselves around the body of the victim and crush them to death. However, not all snakes are scary or venomous. They are very important part of the ecosystem and keep pests like mouse, rat, etc. under control. Yet, humans are mesmerized by the massive and the largest species of snakes.
We shall have a look at the world’s biggest snake in the following paragraphs. These beasts slither across the tropical rain forests and give rise to many folktales around the world.
Most members of this family are ambush predators, in that they typically remain motionless in a camouflaged position and then strike suddenly at passing prey. They will generally not attack humans unless startled or provoked, although females protecting their eggs can be aggressive. Reports of attacks on human beings were once more common in South and Southeast Asia, but are now quite rare.
An anaconda is a large, non-venomous snake found in tropical South America. Although the name actually applies to a group of snakes, it is often used to refer only to one species in particular, the common or green anaconda, Eunectes murinus, which is one of the largest snakes in the world.
Pythons are found in sub-Saharan Africa, Nepal, India, Burma, southern China, Southeast Asia and from the Philippines southeast through Indonesia to New Guinea and Australia.
