theres no evidence whatsoever for this extreme length claim,an 18ft wc anaconda can easily have a head that large,there was a much larger green photographed with an even larger head with a local man holding her unfortunately while deceased and that female was just over 19ft

this isn't the one I was talking about but it's another good example,this green also has a huge head but is not particularly long,it has def recently eaten obviously which is when they r so vulnerable to hunters on land,shame really

If you go on YouTube write in sucuri gigante and many huge anacondas come up on there,most claimed at 8 metres but the reality is they are massive in build so they look much longer than they are,there's a few on there in the 6 metre range though,sadly some are killed but a few unharmed so caution advised
