This video of a man poking an Anaconda with a stick has proved why it's never a good idea to provoke wild animals.
And boy does it lunge!
Seriously! Look at the size of that thing!
The video recently gained media attention, and was spread through several news and video sites. It has reportedly been shared more than 10,600 times.
The Green Anaconda is native to most South American countries, with sightings commonly occuring along remote riverbanks.
They can grow up to 6 metres in length, and can weigh up to an astonishing 150kg.
Unlike venomous snakes, the Anaconda kills by constriction; wrapping coils around its prey and slowly tightening its grip until asphyxiation occurs.
