These wildlife photos were taken in Bolivia, Venezuela, and the US. The anteater photos, as well as the photos of the enormous anaconda were taken in the Los Llanos region of Venezuela. The anaconda photos, in particular, were a challenge - acquired only after hours of wading swamps before we spotted two that had obviously recently eaten - and both were within about fifty meters of each other. The photo of the piranha was taken in the Rio Yacuma region of Bolivia. With the exception of the Piranha and the Amazon Tree Frog, all animals were photographed in their natural habitat. To see more frog photos, visit my frog gallery. Larger version of these reptile and amphibian photos can be viewed by using a mouse rollover, clicking an image, or using the Slideshow below.

photo of a large Anaconda showing its stomach with large lumps of something it had just eaten 



in the swamps of Venezuela
Anaconda #671
This Anaconda was found in the wild in a swamp in the Los Llanos region of Venezuela. It's sheer speculation what this anaconda had eaten. Perhaps it was a Capabara, perhaps a Caiman. In any case, the curves and lumps in its enormously stretched belly was something that had been alive very shortly before we encountered this snake.

Anaconda #672
I waded swamps in Los Llanos, Venezuela for hours looking for the famous anaconda. We found two, coincidentally spaced only perhaps fifty meters apart from each other. Thankfully, they both had very recently eaten, probably within hours. The largest of the two - both of which were enormous - was perhaps 6-7 meters long.
