How many jabs would a normal healthy westerner need before going exploring in the Amazon jungle? Anyone?

Confirm primary courses and boosters are up to date.

Courses or boosters usually advised: Hepatitis A; Tetanus.

Other vaccines to consider: Diphtheria; Rabies; Typhoid; Yellow Fever.

Beware of malaria, dengue fever, schistosomiasis and zika virus infection. :(

I wouldn't get all those vaccines just to look at big snakes. Heck, I could do that by simply attending a political rally here at home. :innocent:

World's longest at 17 feet? Not a chance. Try 30+ feet.

There are no confirmed cases of snakes over 25 or so feet.

You'll quite often hear anaconda's referred to as the world's heaviest snake, but very rarely as the heaviest.

Keep in mind that a 17 ft anaconda would weigh roughly the same as a 27 ft python.

It's the girth dude, the girth!

Agree that the anaconda is the worlds heaviest snake, not the longest.

Pythons are the longest, but they are quite slim...just like the relationship between japanese and americans.... :clap:

After doing more research, you're exactly right and I stand corrected.

Kick ass. That anaconda could eat a small rhinocerous.

There could have been a trophy from that encounter without harming the snake at all. Notice how gray her eyes are when we first see her head, and then how drab and uniformly colored her body is. I would say she was just a couple of hours or less from shedding her skin!

And having been shopping with a woman for a new posh frock.... :cry: I'd rather be in the company of the snake.
