VIDEO: Teacher Wrestles 17ft-long Anaconda After It Ate Dog
He then took it home – so his children could play with it.
The 39-year-old says sons Noam 11, Solal, eight, and five-year-old Mano, were never in danger because: ‘I put a cloth on the snake’s head so it was blind and became like a big worm.’
After keeping the anaconda in his bath overnight he took it back to the river the next day to release it – because his wife was nagging him.
The Frenchman said he set up home in Matoury, French Guinea, 15 years ago to fulfil a childhood dream of living with, and catching, snakes.
‘I have caught between 15 and 20 anacondas while I’ve lived here,’ he said.
‘While this one surprised me with its strength and length, to capture it was a dream come true.’
