A swiss diver, captured these pictures of one of the six anacondas he saw on his 10 day trip to Mato Grosso in Brazil. This one was about 26-feet long.
"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." - Franco Banfi
At least with a giant but non-venemous snake, if it bites you and you get away, you only have injuries that can heal. Unlike a poisonous snake, which could cause your flesh to melt, among the many other effects of many different types of venemous snakes.
