Deforestation is a crucial factor that many animals will need to face to survive. Many predictions about the future rainforests are that they will dry up. The green anaconda naturally lives in trees. However, due to deforestation, they will need to have more scaly, dry skin to move around in dusty, dirty riverbeds. Furthermore, because they will not have trees to hide out in, they will need to blend in with the ground, which will be light brown. Another possibility is adapting to survive in the river before it dries up. To survive a primarily aquatic life, anacondas might develop gills to become a more competitive predator, allowing them to spend more time underwater to stalk their prey. The fate of the green anaconda is unknown. Whether in a dried-up riverbed or watery wonderland, the green anaconda will need to adapt to surive.
