Two metre anaconda found in Bagnols-sur-Cèze

France 3/Scoop, Nov 16

An anaconda more than two metres long has been found in a stream in the centre Bagnols-sur-Cèze, Gard.

Some children sounded the alert, after they discovered the snake whilst playing by the stream.

The police and a veterinary arrived very quickly, and the snake was captured safely.

The specialist veterinary came from the Croix-Bleue clinic. They captured it with pincers, taking care that the snake couldn’t bite. Their bite is not venomous, but they can deliver a huge and painful bite. They kill their prey by suffocation.

Once the snake was captured, it was taken to the vetinary clinic. Its final destination will be the crocodile farm in Pierrelatte, Gard.

You can watch a video of the capture here.
