Dubai: What is easily the most recognizable and well-known snake in the world is coming to Dubai! Two huge anacondas measuring approximately four metres in length have arrived at The Green Planet this summer!
Visitors to the stunning four-story biodome in Dubai’s City Walk should book tickets now to observe this amazing reptile up close in the recently renovated nocturnal walkthrough area of The Green Planet along with several other new nocturnal roaming residents such as a prehensile porcupine, armadillos, tamandua anteaters, the famous rescued slow loris family, Burmese pythons, forest scorpions and more!
Found in south America, anacondas – or water boas – use their immensely powerful jaws to capture prey, then use their bodies to suffocate it before swallowing it whole.
Check-in with The Green Planet’s social media channels to learn more about the majestic anacondas coming to the region for the first time this summer!
About The Green Planet
The Green Planet is a four-story origami-style glass bio-dome that invites guests to explore the planet’s fascinating flora and fauna through an immersive expedition into the tropics. Designed as an enclosed ecosystem, The Green Planet recreates the enchanting world of a tropical forest with over 3,000 plants and animals and the world’s largest indoor artificial and life-sustaining tree. Each of the four levels reflects a level of the rainforest: The Canopy that forms the roof of the rainforest, absorbing the majority of the sunlight and diffusing the rainfall; The Mid Story where trees commonly have large leaves in order to absorb any sunlight filtered down through the canopy; The Forest Floor Humid. Quiet. Dark. where barely any sunlight reaches the floor and The Flooded Rainforest is complete with a giant aquarium filled with species such as arapaima, arowana and graceful stingrays. The Green Planet is also home to the region’s first bat cave that recreates the Seba’s bats’ natural habitat and stays true to the cosy low-lit environments they thrive in. Located at City Walk in Dubai, The Green Planet inspires people of all ages and nationalities to learn about and care more for every single plant and animal that inhabits the earth.
