Initial reports suggested that Ana Julia may have met a tragic end, possibly due to being shot.

"It is heart-wrenching to say that the snake, which was as strong as iron and roamed around Bonito for decades, is dead," Professor Wonk lamented. Despite being perfectly healthy and in the prime of her life, Ana Julia's untimely demise raises questions about the conservation of these magnificent creatures. With the potential to produce numerous offspring, her loss is a blow to biodiversity.

While speculation swirls about the circumstances surrounding Ana Julia's death, officials have stressed that no conclusive evidence of foul play has been found. The investigation into her passing continues, with all aspects being thoroughly examined. "There are other Anacondas in the region that are more than 7.5 meters long and weigh around 500 kilograms," shared members of the Waorani people, highlighting the presence of other formidable snakes in the area.
