Heads up for this hoax:
This picture is going around social media such as Facebook. It is a blatantly bad photoshop of a green anaconda into another photo of people to skew the size. Also, the Amazon is NOT in Africa. Shake your head and walk away. Better yet, post HOAX! in the comments of those who post the pic, include a link to this post and THEN shake your head and walk away.

Addition: Karl Shuker’s piece on debunking the hoax: “unless someone had thoughtfully embedded a veritable ‘kill-o-meter’ inside the anaconda, how could anyone state so precisely how many humans and animals it had killed?”
It was linked to the timeline of one Rakesh Mintu Bjp, and when I clicked that link it took me to an annotated version of the photo on this person’s timeline. I also checked online outside Facebook, and the photo and annotation had already appeared on many other websites during the past month or so. Consequently, neither had originated with Bjp – he had merely posted one such copy on his FB timeline, as had several other persons, I discovered, which means that the originator of the photo and annotation is currently unknown.
