Giant Amazon Snake Creeper

A carnivorous plant native to remote sections of the Amazon Jungle that feeds almost exclusively on Boa Constrictors and other snakes.

The Giant Amazon Snake Creeper grows primarily in the tops of trees and like its favorite food, kills by constriction before pulling its prey inside of itself where the rotting, composting and digestion process begins.

Growing up to 500' long, a single Giant Amazon Snake Creeper can sometimes overload the trees they grow in causing both to fall to the ground. While the life expectancy of a Giant Amazon Snake Creeper is only a few short weeks after falling to the forest floor one plant can wreck havoc to the community upon which it falls forcing entire villages to have to be abandoned.

On occasion Giant Amazon Snake Creepers have been known to eat other animals as well as humans.
