RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - A giant anaconda managed to safely cross the interstate highway BR-364 in Brazil thanks to helpful bystanders who stopped traffic to allow the monster of a reptile get to the other side.
Local media reported the snake to be about 30 kilograms in weight and over three meters long.
Biologist Flavio Terassini told G1 Globo the snake was likely in search of something to eat.
“These snakes can appear in the urban area in search of food, which is small rodents, and in the city they can feed on dogs and even cats . . .
