An American man dives underwater with a 3.7-meter anaconda wrapped around his neck and upper body.
American citizen Charles Wieand wore only a pair of shorts and dived into the water with a nearly half-pound anaconda wrapped around his body, according to Caters News.
While Charles held his breath at the bottom of the BioNova pool in Ojai, California, USA, the python licked his fingers and wrapped tightly around his waist. Charles was in the water with the giant python for half an hour on December 7.
“The way the python moves is amazing, being in the water is very comfortable. I’m not too worried because I know the animal owner and its personality, but you never know in advance. The feeling when it swims. around me was almost like meditating. I even had time to hug it,” Wieand shared.
According to Charles, anacondas can stay underwater for at least 10 minutes. This is one of the largest python species in the world, adults can be nearly 10 meters long, weighing about 250 kg. This python usually lives in the Amazon basin, South America.
