Other anaconda species are the yellow dark-spotted, and Bolivian varieties, yet all are smaller than the green anaconda. Green anacondas are normally a dark brown with large blinking black acnes running down their backs and smaller oval acnes with yellow centers along their sides.

They live in swamps, marshes and streams and can swim in the water better than slither slowly on land. Most of their hunting time is spent in the water and prey on a different type of animals including fish, tapirs, wild pigs, birds, caimans and capybaras.
