30-Foot Monster Anaconda Shoots Out Of The Water And Bites A Fishing Guide

A close-up of some ice

This is some nightmare fuel right here.

For the most part, the average American gets freaked out when they unexpectedly come across a black rat snake, which aren’t venomous or even really all that dangerous at all.

Okay, okay, maybe that’s just me… but imagine accidentally stepping on one that was hidden in the grass while you were playing golf at only 12-years-old? That stuff will scar you for life.

With that being said, it’s impossible for me to imagine the types of creatures that lurk in the jungles and rivers of the Amazon.

For example, the Anaconda.

We’re talking about a creature that can grow as long as 30 foot, be 12-inches in diameter, and weigh up to 550-pounds, all while slithering… AND swimming.

One of these massive serpents of the deep came out of nowhere, jumped out of the water, and bit a fishing guide in Brazil, according to Jam Press via the New York Post.

Heart pounding video captured the whole moment.

The fishing guide had reportedly noticed the massive snake while guiding a number of tourists on the Araguaia River in Goias, located in Central Brazil.

38-year-old fishing guide Joao Severino was the one who captured the encounter on film, and told Jam Press:

“When I was filming the anaconda, she pulled away and I saw that she was about to strike.

I saw the snake on a stump and I said, ‘Look, guys, an anaconda is over there, I’m going to film it for you to see.”

In the video, you can see the snake coiled up on a stump that was partially underwater, when in the blink of an eye, it jumps out and bites the guide.

The snake then makes its way back into the water, and believe it or not, you can hear the guests laughing in the background.

Not even gonna lie, I’d be losing my shit if I saw a 30-foot snake manhandle my fishing guide.

Luckily enough, the Anaconda’s bite wasn’t enough to penetrate the skin, and he laughed off the attack as well.

Although these creatures are insanely big, biologist Edson Abrao said they aren’t venomous. However, they’re insanely strong:

“They aren’t venomous but they are extremely strong, one of the most agile snakes that exist underwater. They are animals that feed and kill their prey underwater.”

Abrao added that even though Anaconda attacks on humans are rare, they will attack whenever they feel threatened.

And speaking of anacondas… how good is Anaconda the movie? I mean, Jennifer Lopez, Ice Cube, giant snakes…. what more you could you want in a awesomely terrible action thriller.

Man Saves Deer From Snake With A Tree Branch

Wildlife is incredible.

I mean, what would a snake do with a deer anyways? Swallow it whole and not eat for the next 6 months? Crazier things have happened…

It doesn’t seem like the best choice for prey, but hey, a snake like this will do whatever it wants to and I won’t be arguing with it. And I certainly wouldn’t be beating it with a stick to save a deer…

This guy wanted to the events to be over and clear the roadway at this zoo in Thailand.

The video starts with something moving around a motionless deer. Oh, it’s a large snake strangling it to death. The deer seems to be at the end of the road.

Then a tree branch being held by a person pops into view. The man beats the snake with the leafy end of the stick. The snake is unpleased with the interruption and lunges towards the man.

The man flips his stick around and starts pokes the snake a few times.

As the old saying goes, “I wouldn’t touch that with a ten-foot pole.”

Usually, it’s used in different context, but it’s highly appropriate here too…

Anyways, the snake clearly didn’t like being poked and decided to make a break for it. As it unravels itself from the deer, the deer literally gets flipped over and the life snaps back into it and it gets up and takes off for safety. The snake clearly had a death grip going on, and the deer probably didn’t have much time left.

Both animals head opposite directions and the road is cleared.

Success… and insanity.
