  • Write your own script to accompany the main clip. How will you make it in the style of Sir David Attenborough? How will you build suspense? How will you weave factual information about the anaconda into your script? What emotional response do you want from your audience?
  • Watch the related clip below. The Waorani tribe live deep in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest. They were only discovered by the outside world 60 years ago. Imagine that you were the explorer that made this discovery.Write about your time with the tribe and how you witnessed males of the tribe capture and release a massive anaconda – all with their bare hands.
