The anaconda is the heaviest snake in the world, lives in South America and is capable of killing and eating many different large animals. The lion is the governor of the African plains and it feeds many different animals.
The size of an animal can help a lot in a fight to dominate the opponent. An adult male lion weighs between 185 and 225 kg (400 and 500 lb), a body length of 1.8 and 2 m (5.9 and 6.5 inches) and a tail of 80 and 95 cm (31 a 37 inches). A shoulder height of 90 to 120 cm (35 to 47 inches). Female anacondas are larger than males and weigh around 100 kg (220 lb) with a total length of 4.6 to 5 m (15 to 16 feet).
The lion gains in size comparison if it weighs more.
Anacondas are slow on land due to their voluminous size and only reach a maximum speed of 5 mph (8 kph). They are much faster in the water, swimming at double the speed of 16 kph (10 mph).
The anaconda has a bite force of 900 psi, more powerful than the lion’s bite force of 650 psi. Both animals asphyxiated their prey in different ways. A lion uses its strong mandibles and canine teeth of 10 cm (4 inches) wide to bite the neck of its prey, causing it to suffocate or bleed, whichever occurs first. Use your claws of 4 cm (1.5 inches) and the weight of the body to hold the animal.
The anaconda is a non-venomous snake and uses its large and muscular body to constrain its prey. The anaconda kills its target and then wraps its body around the animal’s thoracic cage, crushing the lungs with 90 psi.
