Once a giant snake licks the lens of your camera, it’s perhaps the urgent time to get out of the water. But not for the Bartolomeo Bove, the professional underwater videographer and shark diver who recently traveled halfway around the world swimming with the largest living snake – A green large Anaconda.
These giant predators typically reside in murky streams, swamps, and marshes and majorly found in South America. But for the Formoso river located in Brazil offering crystal clear waters makes it the only spot in the world where tourists can dive with anacondas.
Certain enough, diving partner – Juca Ygarape and Bove in July did find of these long creatures lurking in the water – an approximately 23ft feet long giant anaconda.
Weighing nearly 200 pounds, a viral cʟip showed the giant creature flicking out its tongue before slithering away from Bove, who held the camera. Instead of swimming away and panicked as expected, Bove followed the largest living snake, focused on getting a better view of the creature.
Nevertheless, Bove’s determination paid off real good as he managed to capture some of the most incredible cʟip of the creature – That’s bravery!
