The green anaconda (one of the most well-known rainforest snakes) is a dark green in color with black oval patches on its back. This pattern blends in with the wet, dense vegetation of its habitat. Their eyes and nostrils are on the top of the head, enabling the anaconda to breathe and to see its prey while its body lays submerged under water. They can stay completely submerged for ten minutes. Reports of giant constrictors actually killing and eating humans are quite rare. All in all, their skin blends in perfectly with their habitat and helps them hunt and gather prey.

Globally warmer temperatures mean it's more likely that animals (like snakes) will expand and explore new territories to call home.
