The adventurer, who has rowed the Atlantic and trekked across Greenland's Polar Ice Cap, pounced on the jungle giant, which weighed around 100kg and had a girth of 27ins. The 29-year-old biologist from Cardiff was exploring the tropical rainforests of Guyana when he happened across the monster reptile on a bank of the Rewa River. Niall, who has a passion for handling creatures that would have most people shaking in their boots, said: "I'd always dreamed of seeing an anaconda and I knew that our work in Guyana would give us a real possibility of seeing one. I was trying to hold its head to the ground and it kept trying to turn its head to bite me - it was wrestle. Its strength was amazing and when a ripple went through its body it shook all of us."
