A worldgorger dragon. that's what you can find when paddling with a dugout canoe through the rivers of Ecuador's Yasuni National Park. The dragon is known as Green Anaconda (Eunectes murinus). Photo by Alejandro Arteaga. Nope, not paddling there.
An anaconda is a large, nonvenomous snake found in tropical South America. Although the name actually applies to a group of snakes, it is often used to refer only to one species in particular, the common or green anaconda.
