Apparently even though we have given a name to “black widow” spiders for devouring their mate but they are not the only ones!
Even Anacondas do that, they eat one of the mates of the mating ball, because after that the female goes for a seven month gestation period without a single swallow (snakes don’t chew, they swallow whole). So… guess its ok if she eats one of the dozen or so males from the ball! ha!
Female anacondas are 20 feet or longer when they are full grown, whereas males don’t grow more than 10 feet, so if the lady wants a snack I don’t think the male can do much!
The grown anacondas quite unlike the movie ;p (which I honestly doubted) are very peaceful, they are too big and heavy to do antics like that. they mostly loll around and eat once in a couple of months… animals are lucky that the digestive system of snakes is very low, so they seldom eat!
