creepycryptozoology:

Megaconda / Titanboa

In 1948, a group of native Brazilians claimed to have captured a 131-foot long snake deep in the Amazon Rainforest. To date, biologists have yet to recognize a living reptile in excess of 33 or 34 feet, but some believe this giant anaconda, or “megaconda,” was in fact a real specimen. The natives called the terrifyingly enormous snake a “Matatoro,” or bull killer, after the half-swallowed bull they claimed to have found inside of it.
The well-documented existence of the green anaconda — the world’s largest snake — and the fact that much of the 2.2 million-square-mile Amazon Rainforest remains unexplored lends credence to the theory that an even larger snake exists, although scientists have yet to find evidence to support the rumors. Native to South America, the green anaconda maintains its monumental size with a diet of wild pigs, deer, birds, turtles and even jaguars. If the megaconda does exist, it would certainly require even larger meals to survive. Would bulls, anacondas and possibly even entire villages of people be on the megaconda’s menu?
