Amazing animal-18 ft Anaconda

Niall McCann (right) and Rob Pickles (second from left) struggle to lift the 18ft anaconda they caught in a jungle in Guyana. The jungle giant weighed around 100kg and had a girth of 27ins. The team were exploring the tropical rainforests of Guyana when they happened across the monster reptile on a bank of the Rewa River. Niall said: "Its strength was amazing and when a ripple went through its body it shook all of us."
