Animals of All Regions Back
The green anaconda is a type of boa and is the heaviest snake in the world. 
Females are significantly larger than males. Females are ovoviviparous and she carries her eggs inside of her body until the babies are ready to hatch. She gives birth to 12 – 80 live snakes! These newborns are independent as soon as they are born, and do not need any parental care from their parents. These snakes are semi-aquatic and spend most of their time in the water. They can hold their breath for up to 30 minutes.
