Giant anaconda that's 18ft long

Most people trekking through the jungle would turn tail and run a mile the opposite direction if they came face to face with a giant anaconda. But not Niall McCann (pictured right). Like a real-life Indiana Jones he decided instead to do battle with the beast - something he said was a lifetime's ambition. The 29-year-old biologist from Cardiff had been exploring the tropical rain forests of Guyana when he happened across the 18ft-long snake on a bank of the Rewa River.

--- அன்புடன் உங்கள் சகோதரன்: 
பரங்கிப்பேட்டை - காஜா நஜிமுதீன், ரியாத்.

The Almighty God says,

When a servant thinks of Me, I am near.
When he invokes Me, I am with him.
If he reflects on Me in secret, I reply in secret,
And if he acknowledges Me in an assembly,
I acknowledge him in a far superior assembly.


- Prophet Muhammad as reported by Abu Huraira
