All the snakes seen in the images are anacondas. Anaconda (disambiguation) are the largest snakes and are found in tropical South tropical America. 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.

These cold blooded reptiles can grow to a massive length of 29 feet and weigh up to 227 kg. They also measure 12 inches in diameter. The longest snake ever recorded was 33 feet but it was a python. Even though the longest python is longer than the record-holding anaconda, the girth of the anaconda is far bigger. Anacondas in the jungles of South America can grow as big around as a grown man!
Anacondas are capable to swallowing things twice their size. They do not chew.

Their stomach has very strong acid that can digest almost anything. If it gets hard for them to digest the food they puke it back. Anacondas are members of the boa constrictor family of snakes. That means that they kill their prey by coiling their large, powerful bodies around their victims and squeezing until their prey suffocates or is crushed to death and dies from internal bleeding. Then the snake unhinges its jaw and swallows the victim whole. Anacondas are much more likely to eat aquatic creatures, such as fish. Occasionally, they have been known to eat: caimans (a relative of the alligator), other snakes, deer, and even jaguars. Anacondas are rather slow-moving snakes, so they have to rely on stealth and the element of surprise to catch their unsuspecting prey.
