Is that really a giant anaconda? Read on to find out
A video that recently resurfaced online appears to show an anaconda of gigantic proportions getting caught in a trap. The video was shared on Twitter with the caption “Trying to catch who’s been stealing the chickens”, indicating that the snake was captured while trying to steal poultry.
However, there is more to the clip that meets the eye.
In the video, the snake indeed appears to be massive. It is seen swimming across a muddy lake to stick its head inside a huge blue drum, getting trapped and writhing furiously in water. The video, which first appeared online over two years ago, has been viewed more than a million times on Twitter.
