I would think if it was an anacanda, that it died out years ago. Not that heavly support anyone other model of what it could be. I would hazard a
guess at some type of long neck turtle, and i do belive turtle can live in excess of 100 plus years. But even then this was in the 1800's, so a
turtle of that size would already be pretty old. So there would have to be a breeding population, to keep the sightings going. Which inturn might
explain the dieing off of the sightings for years.
