400 lb Anaconda vs 300 lb North Pacific Giant Octopus
while its true octopi can move around on land, i really doubt they can fight an anaconda.
especially big octopi.
But Anaconda can also swim.
Fight takes place in the Amazon river
Assuming the octopus can survive there, i'd give it the victory.
pacific octopi eat sharks ._.
then again anaconda eat jaguars.
the octopus could just drown the anaconda, since the anaconda cant breathe underwater, but then again the anaconda can hold its breath for up to 30 min.
IIRC the giant octopus lives in sea(salt water), so it's not going to survive in river due to osmotic pressure difference.
Thus anaconda wins.
Assuming some sort of neutral water setting where neither is affected negatively I can see the anaconda with it's longer body wrap itself around the octopi's head and crush it.
Won't the Anaconda be in a VERY bad match up here?
I have a hard time seeing how you'd constrict an Octopus... unless ofcause the Anaconda is lucky to block the gills
The Octopus got the Beak, does it have that plate thing in the head like Squids?(if they do it should be quite small i belive)
Battlefield is at the beach area at around 2-5 meter deept right?
IIRC getting constricted by an anaconda is like having a bus on top of you
Aside from that, octopi are flexible and can be compressed... which is a bad thing against a creature that EATS PREY WHOLE. Normally, prey strong enough to withstand being crushed can struggle against being swallowed too... but an octopus can't. Its body's ability to squish itself is one of its worst enemies there, as it just makes it easier for the anaconda to gobble it up.
The pressure of an anaconda surely isn't as bad as deep sea pressure.
and this whole thing sounds like the title to an asylum film
difference is some creatures adapt to deep sea pressure. You can't apply this to non atmospheric pressure. Otherwise a small fish living 4 miles underwater can survive you smashing it
An Octopus can deform its body and squeeze through the tiniest of holes. I saw it on Discovery. The Anaconda's constricting method would prove very fruitless.
Swallowing it would work, but that's if it could actually swallow it. With the suckers all attached to its body that isn't happening very easily.
I'd actually give this one to the octopus.
now if this was a sperm whale...
Is this Paul Octopus? he has Pre-cog
The question is would it even be smart to swallow an octopus?
Seaguls/birds have swallowed smaller octopusses whole and it has at times resulted in the Octopus eating the bird from within... sometimes reulting in both's death but on rare ocassions the Octopus survived and left the bird
Is this Paul the octopus. It has pre cog.
Now back to the topic.
Octopus wins this. Aren't they highly poisonous too.
I've never heard that. i could be misinformed however.
As much as I like the octopus to win, I think the anaconda might pull this off.
Equal weight however...
Some octopi have poison but the only one I can think of is the blue ring and it's small as fuck. Like under 6 pounds small
I highly doubt a giant octopus is venomous
You do have venomous octopuses but that's like the blueringed one that is about the size of a palm...
One must not forget that Anaconda have really sharp teeth good for latching on to its victims. This can be used as an advantage if the octopus tries to slither out of its grip .
So the Anaconda takes this .
WHAT?! A seal can kill a giant octopus. i never heard of one so big as the main guy is talking about tho. the anaconda wins tho cuz it has more stamina and can last a fight. octopus dont like to use too much strength when figghting
Hmm... looking at wiki it's surprising how little giant octopuses weight compared to their length(then again the arms is what take most of the length)
There are records of Octopi reaching weights above that
