Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Anacondas are lay-and-wait predators. Their bodies are huge. Most are about 6 feet in length, but some stretch up to 28 feet. They prefer to live in slow-moving, muddy water which helps to support their massive weight. They cannot hear, so they depend on the senses of vibration and smell to detect nearby prey, grabbing the animals with their sharp teeth and constricting the air out to kill them. They then swallow them whole and relax for the digestion process to take place. Eating an otter will satisfy an anaconda for several weeks; eating a full-grown deer will last for months. Anacondas live in South America. The most common and the most studied are green. The other three species (yellow, DeShauensee, and Bolivian) are now being sought out. Snake scientists capture anacondas and place transmitters inside them to track their movements. They also mark them for later identification. Large, full-color photographs support the text and aid in understanding. Includes a glossary, a bibliography, websites, and an index. A good choice for young researchers. Part of the "Wild about Snakes" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
