A giant anaconda, S, is a type of monster that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM. It is a huge type of snake that is the strongest type you can encounter in EvilHack. A giant anaconda is strong and capable of swimming like other snakes, but will not hide under items.

A giant anaconda has a bite attack, a holding attack that can drown a target similar to the python, a second holding attack, and a digestion attack that can gradually swallow characters and will instantly kill smaller monsters.


Randomly generated giant anacondas are always created hostile.

Giant anacondas generate among the random S that are part of the first quest monster class for Archeologists and make up 2435 of the monsters that randomly generate on the Archeologist quest.

In Hack'EM, giant anacondas may also appear among the random S generated in The Snake Pit of the Lawful Quest at level creation

Giant anacondas generated at level creation are given a random item to hide under, despite being huge and lacking the ability to hide.

Encyclopedia entry

Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field
which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea,
hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of
the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is
in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of
it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent
said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth
know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be
opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And
when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it
was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one
wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also
unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou
hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I
did eat. And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou
hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above
every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and
dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put
enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her
seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
[ Genesis 3:1-6,13-15 ]
