The question what is the biggest snake can be confusing, the biggest as far as girth is the Green Anaconda, on average anacondas are more then 20 ft long many reaching lengths of 29ft or more, with a weight of over 550 lbs, in terms of length then and only then will the Reticulated Python exceed the anaconda, the longest python was measured at 33ft but even this python can't match the total mass of the anaconda.

Anacondas are members of the Boidae family of reptiles and spend most of their time in rivers and swamps of the Amazon in South America, female anacondas are generally larger then the males and bear their young live and are called "Neonates", the number of young varies, some have produced 100 babies, but the average is between 20 to 40 babies. Dietconsist of (depending on the size of the anaconda, the larger the snake the larger the prey) large/small rodents like capybaras, also pigs, caiman, jaguars, deer, dogs, birds even fish and is acquired by ambushing and constricting it's prey (the anaconda is so powerful it generally crushes it's prey) then swallowing it whole, the digestion of the anaconda is very slow thereby allowing it to survive without food for well over a year.

Anacondas have around a 30 year life span and the biggest threat to it is man and loss of their habitat.

Not really. Younger anacondas can be to other snakes and bigger predators but adults are often to big for other predators to bother to hunt.

What eats a bolivian anaconda?

Anaconda's spend a lot of time in Water which gives them the name "Water Boa". Many of the water mammals and other species that live around the water bodies, form the prey species. They can eat anything they can overpower & kill including fish, birds, mammals like Tapir, Capybara, Reptiles like Caiman etc. They constrict (squeeze) their prey to kill and then swallow them whole. They usually prefer prey that they can swallow. Large prey like a Buffalo or an Adult Human are impossible to swallow for the Anaconda. So, they don't usually eat them. However, they can easily kill any living animal.
