Survival Guide: Anaconda Bite
Haven't been bitten by an Anaconda in particular, but have been bitten a couple times by mid-size Pythons and Boas (5-6 feet), which are also constrictors. The snake's bite is no worse than your average dogbite. The danger from the snake bite is 2 fold in that the bite itself may get infected, but that's not a worry at the time of the bite, the big deal is not getting wrapped in the coils and being able to extracate yourself. With the big snakes (over 8-9 feet (2 meters)) you never feed them when you're by yourself. You need the other guy to get the snake off you. My experience is that the bite bleeds a lot and is slow to heal, but is not deep. My bites did not require any stitches or anything... No big deal...I was cringing that entire time. I can't believe how calm he was the entire time..it didn't seem to even hurt.
