Big snake in Peru - level 2
Residents in Peru made a surprising discovery. They found a huge anaconda in the river.
The men found the snake after it ate. Most snakes are aggressive after eating but this one was calm, probably because it ate too much. They caught and killed the anaconda. Then they took pictures with its dead body.
The snake was 16 feet long (4.8 metres). Anacondas have no poison. To kill other animals, they must get around their body and press. The animal cannot breathe and it dies.
Difficult words: discover (something new which you find), huge (big), poison (liquid which can kill you).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
