This is the black anaconda, an intrepid boa which attacks anything that threatens it. It is madre of the enchanted cocha brava seen here and makes people afraid to hunt or fish in the area; for this reason all kinds of animals thrive in a cocha brava. The oil of the yana yacumama is highly valued as it is so fine that if held in the hand it will drip right through and round your hand! It opens padlocks so efficiently that even burglars use it for house breaking. If you rub its oil on your body when there is a full moon you will be a very good shot. Otherwise it will cure rheumatism and withered limbs but the oil should be heated first in a water bath.
