Video taken on April 8, 2007 of an Anaconda consuming feeder chicks

The inexperienced anaconda (Eunectes murinus) is the biggest snake on the earth by weight, and the second longest.

This video focuses on the science of snake conduct to help a grasp’s thesis. Video is for quotation for junior highschool, highschool science stories.

Shows the searching technique of a giant constrictor, finding small prey by scent, utilizing tongue. Video demonstrates that enormous constrictors have a desire for small prey as a chance for energy no matter dimension, and no matter assumptions made by researchers for exclusitivity of huge meals sources. Also, please be aware the ‘pterygoid stroll’ of snake’s jaws over small prey. Quadrate bones at again of snake’s skulls at attachment factors to decrease jaws aren’t rigidly hooked up. They pivot permitting vertical and horizontal rotation.

Unlike a mammalian jaw which is constructed for brute chewing or biting pressure — as you may see on this video — a snake’s jaws are related with tendons and ligaments that offers it maneuverability.

A snake’s decrease jaw will not be joined at the entrance by a inflexible symphysis as mammal jaws are, however by an elastic ligament that enables the 2 halves to unfold aside, related in entrance by an elastic ligament. Each half of decrease jaw strikes independently. Quadrate bones at the again of snake’s skulls at attachment factors to decrease jaws, aren’t rigidly hooked up. They pivot permitting vertical and horizontal rotation.

Jaws of snakes don’t dislocate. One of the enduring myths of snake feeding mechanisms is that the jaws detach. They keep related on a regular basis. As seen within the video, the 2 decrease jaws transfer independently of each other. The quadrate bone will not be rigidly hooked up to the cranium, however articulates with the cranium at one finish and is due to this fact free transferring.

Video reveals the (*2*) to get the feeder chicks into the python’s abdomen. Called a pterygoid stroll, the python opens its jaw and alternately ratchets its higher jaw over the floor of the meal, in flip “walking” its mouth over and across the prey.
