The Green Anaconda doesn't need any introduction. Just one look at this fellow and you know that you need to keep your distance and respect its privacy. Well known for being one of the largest and heaviest snake in the world (maximum length 9 meter and at least 200 kg heavy).
But every big and large animal once started small in their life.

Raptors, like this Great-black Hawk, have excellent eyes and here is why.
