Reticulated
Python is the world longest snake but it is not the heaviest snake, on the
other hand Green Anaconda is not the world longest but it is the world heaviest
snake.
Diet
Reticulated
Python relies heavily on birds, mammals like cats, pigs, domestic dogs, monkeys
and Deer. Diet of python is depend on how big the python is, young and small
reticulated python age of 4 years generally relies on birds, rats and frog.
There are many cases of Reticulated Python which are very popular and one of
the cases is from Indonesia where Reticulated Python has fully swallowed the 5
ft human being.
An
adult Green Anaconda relies on birds, fishes, turtles, caiman and small mammals
where as small anacondas swallow fishes and rodents. Green Anacondas are the
world heaviest snake therefore their diets are also heavy, In Amazon large
anaconda usually swallow alligators which weighs up to 34 kg.
Face to Face
This
is very tough and difficult to answer which one is going to win the fight when
these two giants’ snakes will meet each other. As far as stats are concerned
both snakes have the same ability and power, one is the longest and another is
the heaviest but according to snakes experts we have a conclusion that,
heaviest animal and reptiles always have the upper hand over his opponent, so
in that case Green Anaconda will swallow Reticulated Python if they will meet
each other. But this is not possible because a 25 ft long Reticulated Python weighing
up to 80 kg cannot be swallowed by the 18 ft long Green Anaconda weighing up to
120 kg, reason is as both snakes have same width with length varies and there
is not enough space in green anaconda to swallow reticulated python but yes
Reticulated Python can easily swallow Green Anaconda because it has a more
teeth than green anaconda and also have the length advantage.
According
to survey we found that 55 % people thinks that Reticulated Python will win the
fight, 40 % people thinks that Green Anaconda will win the fight and 5 % have
the mix views.
