Facts Check Analysis The message containing world’s largest Anaconda snake found in Amazon River is not true, it is actually photoshopped. The photoshopped Image is viral since 2015 and has been shared on Social media over the years.

As per livescience, Weighing in at 550 pounds, the aptly named giant anaconda (Eunectes murinus) is the largest snake in the world considering its length-to-weight ratio. This species, also known as the green anaconda, averages about 17 feet in length, though some individuals grow to as long as 30 feet.

As per theworldslargestsnake and 2013 Guiness Worlds Lrgest snake record MEDUSA - LARGEST SNAKE EVER IN CAPTIVITY!

MEDUSA SLITHERS INTO GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS 2013, Medusa, the Reticulated Python, holds the official world record breaking measurement of 25 feet 2 inches long (7.67 meters) from October 12, 2011. This makes Medusa the largest snake ever in captivity. She has not had her new official length reported since this time.

The above image was shared in informationng in July 2015, “According to what was posted on a website with a photo of the Anaconda, explains it was found in Africa’s Amazon River and has killed 257 human beings and 2325 animals. It is 134 feet long and 2067 kgs. Africa’s Royal British commandos took 37 days to get it killed.”

However the website published just below the actual content stating the above facts are false. It stated, “THIS IS A COMPLETE FABRICATION. ANACONDAS LIVE IN SOUTH AMERICA..AND THERE IS NOTHING LIKE AFRICAN AMAZON. D ONLY AMAZON FOREST IS IN SOUTH AMERICA. D SPECIE OF CONSTRICTORS DAT LIVE IN AFRICA ARE D AFRICAN ROCK PYTHON AND IT DOESN’T EVEN GROW UP TO D ANACONDA. EVEN D BIGGEST ANACONDA FOUND LIVING OR DEAD ACCORDING TO VERIFIABLE DATA IS NO WHERE NEAR DIS SIZE. SO THIS IS A HUGE, BIG FRAUD AND FABRICATION. ITS NOT IN AFRICA.”

Hence we categorize the image of the largest snake being shared as ignorance of the people of not knowing the true information.
