How Long Can A Anaconda Go Without Eating

Anaconda snakes are one of the biggest species of snakes in the world that can weigh up to 550 pounds and grow up to 30 feet in length. Since this type of snake is so large in size it means that it can consume very large prey such as pigs, deer and even jaguars.

In addition to the fact that anaconda's can eat large prey they also absorb their foods very slowly after eating any sort of meal. As well they are good at not using a lot of energy and protein they consume because they are cold blooded reptiles.

Therefore to answer the question how long can a anaconda snake go without eating the answer is between 6 months to a year without any troubles after a big meal. It may be very shocking to consider a snake can go that long without any food but because of the factors mentioned above they can go long periods of time without eating.

Baby anaconda snakes however that are much smaller will need to eat more often and should usually eat every few weeks. But as they grow older and eat larger prey they can go for much longer periods of time without eating any food.
