Snakes do not have eyelids, so even when they’re asleep they cannot close their eyes. But they do have a protective layer of clear scales, called brille, over their eyes.
Anacondas give birth to live young, around 24-35 at a time.
This is not an Anaconda, but it's close enough (for me), this is my neighbor a.k.a. "the new snake hunter" and he "rescued" it from a car about to flatten it. I said don't do me any favors like that again. He said it was coming out of my woods into the street. My house is the one in the picture, see our woods! Now I am even looking closer when I water the tomatoes and flowers!
