The website Inquisitr is reporting that video footage circulating online claims to show the largest anaconda ever captured and measured, a gigantic specimen allegedly measuring 10 meters (32.8 feet) discovered at a construction site in northern Brazil earlier this year.

The giant snake was allegedly discovered after construction workers at the Belo Monte Dam site in Brazil set off an explosion to destroy a cave that was impeding construction work.

The Belo Monte Dam is a hydroelectric dam complex currently being constructed on the Xingu River in the Altamira municipality of Para state in northern Brazil. The dam is expected to be the fourth-largest in the world in terms of installed capacity, after the Three Gorges Dam in China, the Itaipu Dam on the Brazilian-Paraguay border and the Xiluodu Dam in China.

According to reports, after the smoke and dust of an explosion set off to destroy a cave impeding construction cleared, shocked workers clearing out the collapsed cave reportedly encountered a 33-foot-long Jurassic Park-style reptilian monster, weighing about 400 kg. (about 880 lbs.) and measuring about one meter in diameter (see footage below).
