It Was Not Smart For These Guys To Wake Up A Sleeping Anaconda

Most people, when they see an anaconda resting, would be grateful that the giant snake wasn’t awake and trying to make them its next meal. For whatever reason, that wasn’t the case for this man and his fishermen friends.

On the Santa Maria River in Brazil, these fishermen came across a giant snake resting after a meal. Instead of taking its slumber as a blessing, however, they decided to reach for it with their bare hands and drag it up and down the river.

While the snake may have been too incapacitated to fight them off right then and there, let’s hope he doesn’t have a penchant for revenge. Luckily, as the video states, the men did get charged with a $600 fine. Maybe a blow to their wallets will be more persuasive than a potential anaconda choke slam.
