Say the word snake to some people, and you will notice them getting uneasy and irritated. Some people just hate snakes and don’t want anything to do with them. If you are a staunch christian, you know all the negativity associated with this animal. This is why this story is going to shock you.
A couple from Brazil stopped their vehicle on a highway so that an anaconda could pass. What makes it even scarier is the fact that Fernandes got out of his car and started to control the oncoming traffic.
The giant python was just an arm’s length away from Fernandes, and she could have easily eaten him.
Other motorists and pedestrians joined Fernandes in controlling the traffic. Cars stopped and watched as the anaconda slowly took her time to cross the highway.
There were those that were too frightened to leave the car while others recorded the entire ordeal.
When asked why he had risked his life, Fernandes said that he felt obligated to do so given the number of people that would have been so willing to run over the snake and drive away.
“It was beautiful,” he told The Dodo.
Fernandes believes that there’s no need to harm these lovely creatures since they don’t attack anyone unless they are provoked to do so.
Upon reaching the other side of the road, the anaconda crawled into the woods and out of sight.
A renowned Brazilian biologist by the name Flavio Terassini praised Fernandes for his heroic act. The highway is a danger spot for most anacondas that try to cross it. Many of them end up dead by the roadside.
