    While waiting for the Red Sox game against Tampa to come on, I turned on the show Animal Planet. The researcher was in Venezuela collecting and studying Anacondas. They had a Yellow Anaconda wrapped around prey (it was carrion), and that snake is absolutely the "cat's meow" in beauty! They also came upon a large Green Anaconda that was basking in the sun, to incubate the babes inside her. They had a portable ultrasound, and you could see the juveniles inside her, developing! Amazing footage. That Yellow Anaconda is one beautiful snake! [as of this posting time; the Rays are up 5-0, in the top of the 5th. Say goodnight Red Sox!]

    The Yellows are very nice. I believe they stay smaller than the Greens do.
    I don't like seeing Greens at shows. Selling to just anyone who thinks they are cute.

    Yes they do. I think it was stated that the Yellows only get to about 8 to 9 feet. Of course the Greens are the Worlds longest I believe, and the Reticulated Python is the heaviest.(someone correct me if I'm wrong, I may have it reversed!) I'd love to see one of those Yellows close up and personal. They look amazing!

    I have to update this in case anyone missed it! I thought they were all done!!! The Sox came back in the 7th inning and went one to win 8-7. (so much for me being loyal!)

    You have it backwards. The retic is the longest but the green anaconda is the heaviest. The green anacondas can get really massive!
    And the yellows do not get as big as the green but are still a handful of large nasty tempered snake!
    Definitely NOT for the newby!

    Merlin; Do you know of anyone on this site or personally that has a Yellow Anaconda, and if so how about some real nice pics. I would like also to have every one turn onto the Animal Planet channel once in a while. They have some great documentaries on all the time.

    I've seen green anacondas in pet stores, like you said, sold to anyone who thinks it's a cute little snake. I highly, highly disagree with doing that. I also don't think they should sell retics or burms in pet stores. They get too big and too many people end up abusing them or releasing them.

    But what can you do?

    We did have a member who had a small yellow but he hasn't been on in a while.
    Do a search for anaconda and look for posts by "Crash Reborn"

    I just did a Google search and saw some great pics, and other related stories of other snakes and reptiles.

    I remember reading some where that a 20' anaconda can weigh more than a 33' python, that's one massive snake.

    I'll grant you THAT one Nate!! Retics are gorgeous.
    I never was particularly attracted to the condas.
