35-year-old Jorge Hauser, who founded the company adventure tourism Pelagic Fleet in Baja (Mexico) held an unusual 40 minutes in water with a green Anaconda during an exciting visit to Brazil.

Photographer and cameraman, who also regularly swims with great white sharks, have managed to retain composure when I first met the Anaconda on the river Formoso.

«Green Anaconda, which I photographed, is the largest Anaconda species in the world. This was about six meters in length. I was not afraid, because they used to hang out with large predators under the water,» said Hauser.

«Actually, she was very shy and tried to avoid us most of the time. I freedive with sharks and other large predators for more than 10 years. I feel very comfortable that over the years I learned to «read» them and behave correctly,» — said the photographer.

According to National Geographic, green anacondas are the largest snakes in the world. They can grow up to 30 feet — longer than a London bus.

Non-poisonous snakes. Anaconda, like other Boas, not crushes the victim and not break her bones, and squeezes it and does not breathe, with the result that she dies from suffocation. Anacondas are able to attack wild pigs, deer, birds, turtles, capybaras, caimans, and even jaguars.

According to Hauser, he hopes that his photographs will help people to think twice about the impact of their actions on the planet — and possibly to reconsider their attitude to «dangerous» animals.

«Many of the animals I photograph are in danger, we need to understand that they are vital to the balance of the planet, that they are interesting and much less dangerous than we think. If we understand this, you’ll want to protect them,» said the photographer.
