Llanos

WWF Abstract

There are lots of things to entice a nature-loving person to the Llanos Savannas ecoregion, including abundant wading birds and intriguing mammals. But if you're the type who's easily frightened by wriggling wildlife, then this might not be the place for you. Some parts of the ecoregion are home to the giant anacondaĆ·an aquatic snake that often grows to be 13 to 16 feet (4 to 5 m) long but can grow to be up to 26 feet (8 m). Giant anacondas hunt in the dark of night, lying in wait until capybaras and other animals come to the water's edge, and then killing their prey by constriction.
