The National Zoological Gardens Director Anurudda Silva said a 15.5 feet long female anaconda had swallowed a 12 feet long male anaconda this morning soon after they had mated.

“This is a not anything unusual but a habit found among Anacondas. The female Anacondas are normally found to swallow baby Anacondas or their weak siblings,” he said.  

The females of the species are larger than the males. This pair of anacondas was brought from the Czech Republic on March 22, 2003. (Chaturanga Pradeep) (Pix by H.M. Dharmapala)

    meenavan Thursday, 19 December 2013 08:45 AM

    May be the cause of malnutrition or un-satisfaction in mating....

    Yasas Friday, 20 December 2013 01:50 AM

    Manik Thursday, 19 December 2013 09:29 AM

    Usual thing, nothing new. Be it the animal kingdom or human kingdom.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 19 December 2013 09:36 AM

    It is the same scenario everywhere - especially among the humans - where the female ensnares the male and devours it little by little.

    janaka Thursday, 19 December 2013 10:11 AM

    poor male...that is what u call "love is blind"

    Thomas Ranger Friday, 20 December 2013 04:20 AM

    Deadlier than the male - so the saying goes.

    Sylvia Haik Thursday, 19 December 2013 10:13 AM

    In contrast, I have seen a natural science program, where King Cobras were shown to routinely attack and rape their females and occasionally eat them.

    Lahiru K Friday, 20 December 2013 01:06 PM

    Bugger starved for 10 months to be with her and then she had him for dinner. Feels sorry for the fellow. Must be his first love.

    Seelawathie Thursday, 19 December 2013 10:33 AM

    Now you see, the male always suffers.

    Peace Lover Friday, 20 December 2013 04:33 AM

    Better to give one Male Politician a Day to this Anaconda. This will purify the Parliament.
