Photo @tbfrost | In the primary rainforests of the Peruvian Amazon it isn’t easy to find green anacondas, the largest snake in the world. Researchers, like @mohsinkazmitakespictures, employ about the only technique that works: walking through chest deep water in jungle swamps hoping to bump into one in the water or spot one warming itself in a ray of tropical sun. And you might ask what on earth do they do when they actually find a snake? Well, it depends somewhat on the size of the snake, but in general a group of people jump on the anaconda to subdue it so that they can measure, weigh, sex , and make notes on the health of the snake – all important data to understanding the health of the anaconda population here in the Peruvian Amazon.
