  • Yes, it might be a rare incident, but a good size boa or anaconda may be able to accomplish the task. Here is a possibility: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7w_2leqaneg
  • This photo should answer your question...
  • Jesus... Honestly, I'm insanely afraid of snakes. I do NOT like the idea of one having me inside it. I really hope it's impossible. I'm taking a trip to the amazon later this year, hence my concern.
  • I am kind of surprised you are going down there with no knowledge of the country, especially when you are camping. Get some books, or go to the library. it's always good to know what you're in for.
  • This is an interesting story from the BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4313978.stm "Snake bursts after gobbling gator" The snake was able to swallow a 6-foot alligator. The snake burst and died, but so did the alligator. I think anything's possible in the animal kingdom.
  • Well, it might not be able to swallow you, but before then you'll be dead/unconcious already anyway..
  • There is no authentic record or evidence of a snake swallowing a person whole. But they can still kill you. They don't have to eat you for you to be dead. They can strangle you and bite you:-)
  • You're saying a giant snake could kill me? AND possibly consume me? Good GOD...I hope you're all kidding.
  • http://crinaustin.home.att.net/ Do not look at this page if you are truly afraid of snakes.
  • I wouldn't go to the Amazon unless i was a contestant on CBS's Survivor, and could possibly win a million.
  • Oh GOD...according to that article, a snake COULD swallow me. And I have narrow shoulders!!!
  • Anyone else?
  • No, there are indeed snakes large enough to consume a grown man whole. Just keep an eye out. I'd be more worried about the bugs than the snakes, personally.
  • You're serious...a snake...could eat someone MY size...whole.
  • That's needless to say...VERY concerning to me.
  • ok in my opinion a snake would be capable of swallowing a person but it would have to be a reticulated python, Green anaconda, Anaconda, burmese python or an african rock python now the shoulder thing is only a problem if it swallow's you the natural way but there was a case where the snake swallowed feet first and almost finished and if it swallows you feet first and sideways there is an even higher chance if that doesnt answer your question then consider that if your a female the snake will also have a higher chance of swallowing your due to the smaller shoulders sorry but its unlikely you'll ever encounter one of these man-eaters lest you get one as a pet or enter there home territory just stay away from them and you'll stay outside of them
  • Yes, the biggest of the pythons in the Amazon are capable of swallowing a man whole. Sorry to say.
  • Test it out and see!
  • I don't think a snake would eat a human.
  • Thanks for the responses.
  • Anacondas Are Dangerous Snakes, and they can swallow a 7 foot person. Here is a video about them.
  • Yes, but there's nothing to worry about. Anacondas always constrict their prey before swallowing. You'll be dead long before you're in to your shins. So relax and have a good time! :)
  • You would really have to be in a deep sleep to not realize that a snake that big was near you. If its going to swallow you, you will have already been crushed to death so you wont care. :)
  • Duplicate question - go look at your previous answers, stop spamming the site with the same question.
  • Watch this anaconda eat an alligator. Epic shiz :) Trust me, it could get you ;P And what a fabulous trip the amazon will be! I'd love to go there :] Also: 'Snake Eat's Hippo' http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=mhhhh1QiT-U Although I find it's more like regurgiation :]
  • You bet he could. Big constrictors can eat alligators, hippos, goats, cows.
  • Well, check this out & judge for yourself (the wires are 10" apart): . . . .
  • 5-14-2017 There have been lots of reports with photos of a snake swallowing a human, deer, alligator, and other animals. I can not vouch for validity. https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q=snake+swallowed
