Forget about the Chupacabra and the legendary trails of bloodless goats left in its wake. There’s a snake in Nigeria who is even more terrifying than anything that any mythical supernatural creature out there could ever be.
This snake was hungry as hell, but it wasn’t just killing for sport or to satiate its own hunger.
This deadly predator was eating for a hundred, that is a hundred of its unborn children. Mothers will do anything to ensure their children’s survival but this snake wrecked one farming community and put fear in them all at the same time. Then they got even.
When animals started going missing, this farming community started panicking.
Something was clearly targeting the local animals and it had to be stopped.
It became fairly obvious to the locals that it was this Nigerian snake, especially after a baby cow had vanished.
The farmers noticed right away that the snake’s stomach was very swollen.
Since farmers are overly protective of their livestock, they knew they had to eliminate the threat.
Otherwise they were risking losing a lot of money, which in Nigeria can be devastating.
Killing the humongous snake was easy, but what they discovered afterwards was shocking.
The snake had been carrying a hundred eggs in it’s belly.
It was pregnant.
It was a fortunate find given that snake eggs are a Nigerian delicacy.
So not only were the farmers happy to put an end to the threat to their livestock but also to have a little extra something to eat.
In the process, they stopped the next generation of reptilian hunters from hatching.
The snake was an anaconda, or so the locals believed.
Although anacondas are indigenous to the Amazonian regions of South America, this one was clearly a long way from home.
In most cases, anaconda females do things bigger and better.
They can actually grow to 4.8 meters in length versus their male counterparts.
Although the snakes aren’t poisonous, they do pose a serious threat.
They kill their victims by coiling themselves around them until they constrict so much that the prey can’t breathe.
This type of snake can kill animals big and small and no one is safe, not rodent, nor monkeys, cattle, crocodiles or even humans.
