The 53-year-old snake lover went out in the snake’s natural habitat with just a camera and took these remarkable close-up photos of huge snakes resting on the river bank.

Speaking to, “As the snake had just eaten it didn’t take much interest in us,” said Banfi. “At the first moment it’s scary because you don’t know the animal and everybody says it’s dangerous. But after a while you understand that nothing happens if you respect the snake. I have never been so close to a snake like this before. But I think a small poisonous snake is more scary than a big one. At least you can see the anacondas clearly and know what they’re doing,” he added.

The Swiss diver and his team visited the region for ten-days.
