It’s been such a pleasure to have Annie in our home. She is the greatest green anaconda i have ever held, played with and talked to.
My home is a den of snakes that ranges from a footer snakes to the biggest and longest in the world. Luckily, Sasha isn’t there yet. Sasha is one of the longest snake in the world, that reaches up to 30 feet long. Depending on snake locality, will tell you their length- as for Sasha, our tiger reticulated python, she is 2 years old and as long as 15 feet, weighing about 100 lbs-
Annie- a green anaconda is one of the biggest snake in the world, due to their size & weight reaching up to 350 lbs. Snakes are vicious in the wild, the same as dogs in the wild; they will attack and tear you to pieces. Snakes in captivity can be taught to eat specific type of food. They do not eat humans; on different circumstances they do happen unfortunately. Due to the owners lack of knowledge on how to handle a snake or they don’t know what they’re getting into-
We have snakes for the sole purpose of educational reasons. We assist in educating the public and snake enthusiasts about these barred species. Now i said barred only because people tend to freak out when they see snakes slithering about or across the yard…or when they see someone holding a snake and they walk to the opposite side, watches the show from a distance. These are the reasons why we love what we do- educating the public, schools and children and adults alike.
We organize shows and based upon requests, we attend events and identifying special ocassions- it is a fun filled experience with all the snakes we have in our zoo-den.
I encourage you to read up on some articles about these amazing species-
Until next posting everyone 🙂
