Anaconda at zoo dead, to be stuffed and exhibited

An anaconda, one of the seven brought from the Dehiwala zoo in Sri Lanka in 2014, died at the city zoo on Monday morning.

The nine-year-old snake was crushed to death after it became entwined with other anacondas in the enclosure.

After the post-mortem examination, steps were under way to stuff it and exhibit the reptile at the Natural History Museum on the zoo and museum premises.
