Eunectes akayima is the scientific name for the northern green anaconda, a type of boa found in South America and Trinidad. It is one of the longest and heaviest snakes in the world and can reach up to 26 feet tall and weigh 200 kg. The northern green anaconda is a non-venomous constrictor and is genetically distinct from the green anaconda (E. murinus).
