Just because they're not venomous doesn't mean they're not dangerous. Travel with National Geographic to the land of the anaconda, the world's largest snake. Join barefoot scientist Jesús Rivas in the murky marshes of Venezuela on his quest to understand these huge, fearsome reptiles. Up to 30 feet long, weighing many times more than the scientists studying them, anacondas are difficult subjects at best, but the National Geographic team captures brilliant footage of them swimming, resting, mating, and hunting prey. Watch the struggle between a large female and a capybara (the world's largest rodent) and see that the winner doesn't always come away from the battle unscathed. You'll also see some of the other many hazards of the swamp, such as the anaconda's venomous cousins and the smaller-but-still-dangerous cousin of the alligator--the caiman. The work's not for everyone, but you can get at least a taste of the land of the anaconda in your living room. --Rob Lightner
