Anaconda - Yellow Description
  Even though it is smaller than the Green Anaconda, the Yellow Anaconda is a large and striking boa. Like the Green Anaconda, it prefers water to land, and can usually be found in the swamps, marshes, rivers and streams of South America. Although the Yellow Anaconda prefers to hunt live prey, they will also scavenge for animals that are already dead. Anacondas are well known for their rather aggressive disposition. Even those that have been kept in captivity all its life may bite without warning. Luckily, the Anaconda's bite is not poisonous. It is however, very powerful and can cause considerable tissue damage. Anacondas are very difficult to spot in the wild as they can camouglage themselves with ease. It is not a common snake in captivity as some other snakes because of its aggressive personality. They are not often kept as pets, but some people do acquire them. When they become to large or owners can no longer handle their aggressive dispostion, they are handed off to zoos or rescue organiztions, or even released into the wild.
