VIDEO: 10m anaconda discovered in Brazil

A giant snake measuring 33-feet long has been discovered on a building site in northern Brazil. The enormous reptile weighing 400kg was found by construction workers following an explosion in a cave in Altamira, Pará.

Footage filmed by one of the workers shows the snake’s gigantic body, which measures one metre in diameter. A video shows the anaconda was chained to a crane and later lifted up to reveal its yellow spotted belly.

Many users left comments criticising the workers’ for chaining and apparently killing the snake instead of leaving it in its natural habitat.

However, it remains unclear whether they killed the snake or not. The Guinness World Record for the longest snake in captivity is currently held by Medusa, a snake in Kansas City, US, which measures 25 ft 2in long.

The Belo Monte Dam is a hydroelectric dam complex under construction on the Xingu River.

It is set to be the fourth-largest dam installation in the world behind the Three Gorges Dam in China.
