 Human consumption

Is is possible for a adult anaconda to eat a person?

Ummm...not a suspicious question at all. ;-)

People generally aren’t designed right for snake consumption. It’s a shoulders issue.

That’s what I was thinking lol because I was feeding my burm a duck and boa a rabbit and I was watching and think wouldn’t it be hard for a anaconda to eat a human if its laying on its back or stomach because of our shoulders or is it possible it could if we are laying sideways since their jaws stretch.

during the world cup a picture surfaced of an anaconda that had consumed a human, not sure if it was real or not but I think it is feasible. you guys are right that a fully intact human is pretty wide, especially at the shoulders but what would a massive anaconda do to said human during constriction, if big enough to eat a human you know the power that animal would have? im betting enough to break any bone in our body. burms take down deer with antlers, goats with horns   why not humans with shoulders?

so CAN it happen? I gotta think yes! would they actively hunt a human, debatable, but im thinking if hungry enough anything is a meal to a full grown massive ananconda.

I was also wondering can it dislocate our shoulders when constricting to make it easier to eat as it holds it in place.

i gave this some more thought today (super easy day at work!) and I am convinced that a full grown anaconda could consume a human. have you ever seen a side show with the human pretzel? im thinking fold the arms onto the chest and we are no wider around than a goat or a deer.

would be such a brutal way to go!!

Wow....I was testing today using my burm and he is wayyyy smaller then a conda but 17’ should do I guess but if you are talking about a human being constricted in a pretzel postion then it still won’t work if the human is either on its stomach or back but if its in a side position that’s a diffrent story. And that is brutal because its slow and painful. I thought this over too since my boss said I don’t have to work today lol.
