Massive Snake Crossing The Road Brings Traffic To A Standstill In Brazil ??

Here’s a joke: Why did the snake cross the road? To terrify the world.

Traffic in Manaus, Brazil, came to a standstill when a massive serpent slithered out into the street, forcing cars to stop. The anaconda was roughly 11.5 feet long and took its sweet sweet time making it from one side of the street to the next. I guess when you’re as big as this snake, you don’t have to worry about things like common courtesy.

Twitter users could empathize.

To capture these videos, the photographers had to be brave.

This was their home before it was ours!

Bring in the snake wrangler…

Having this snake so close to traffic likely caused some problems.

Unless you’re looking for a tight squeeze, that is.

Perhaps the snake simply learned by watching some of these other animals.

But even the snake wasn’t as slow as this relaxed mammal!

Perhaps these crossings could use a soundtrack…
