Maybe we could bring some back to the Everglades to control other non-native species. What could go wrong?

He must be in contention for a Darwin Award.

I wouldn't say he "braves" anything - he is just foolhardy - stoopid also comes to mind.

I call 'shrinkage'.

Why does it always have to be Snakeneggers?

Note that this is the GREEN ANACONDA found in Brazil and not the smaller YELLOW ANACONDA found in Paraguay. I think.

I don't see this ending well.

What was the name of that loon who thought he could live with the grizzlies?

Do you mean "Lunchtime" McGraw?

First Python: That alligator was tasty.
Second Python: I didn't care much for my lunch. It tasted kind of rubbery.

I'm tired of these m*****f****** snakes that are bigger than this m*****f****** plane!

Anyone who has had pet snakes knows how lethargic they get after eating. The anaconda knows the puny photographer is no threat. As long as he doesn't do something stupid like try to ride it there are more dangerous threats in the Amazon, like mosquitoes. Don't expect anacondas to act like their cousins Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.

Because the anacondas are more highly evolved?

No. It's because of their larger brains.
