Other mistake: After they blow up the dam blocking their passage, there is a far away shot as they are going up river and there's a grassy landmass that goes across the river blocking their route up river.


Continuity mistake: Serone catches a fish using a spear and then chops it up with a knife and a mallet. He then talks to the crew about their documentary and walks back to the chopping board where he proceeds to chop the same fish again, which is now whole. (00:12:32 - 00:13:21)

Denise Kalberg: How dare you! It was you, who brought that snake? You brought the devil.

Trivia: The original theatrical trailer for this movie includes the scene where Gary (Owen Wilson) is grabbed from behind by the snake and pulled backwards but the CGI snake hadn't been added in yet so you just see Gary falling backwards. This trailer is available on YouTube.

More trivia for Anaconda

Question: Is there any truth that an anaconda will regurgitate its prey so it can keep feeding, or was it made up for the film?

Answer: A snake can regurgitate its food, but they do this mostly if they are in danger or stressed, not to go after another prey or swallow it again so it's easier to digest. The food is usually quite a weight on their body and takes long to digest, so the snake could regurgitate it to become mobile again if threatened.
