Massive anaconda kills caiman in Aripo

A worker at the Aripo Lifestock Station took a short walk to a pond to relieve himself around 10 am Monday when he came across a startling discovery.

A 12-foot anaconda was just about to have itself a meal, on 7-foot caiman and was applying the final act of constriction before it prepared to swallow the animal whole.

The worker called other workers who began recording video via their cell phones.


One of them used a piece of wood to prod at the animals and the anaconda then made an escape leaving the dead caiman.
