Hard to tell being coiled but I would but my guess at closer to 20. His head is about the same size as a womans head.

I spend much time in remote and dense jungle like areas, I dont usually take snapshots but next time I come across a snake I will post it here. Generally I am trying to avoid them or they are trying to avoid me so fast there is no time.

I was very surprised by the actual speed he can move at. I had never seen an anaconda before in real life and heard they were fast. Occasinally (especially when hes in a bad mood which you can tell on certain days) he will hear something and rocket his head up.

I can see why so many people say dont keep anacondas as pets. Very beautiful but very dangerous to.

Parker, albino anacondas and burms look almost the same .... Pretty sure it's an anaconda .... The markings look anaconda .... But it's hard to tell without seeing the head. If the zoo marked it as an anaconda, it's an anaconda. =/
