Snakes vs mammalian predators

Since this stump sustained several fresh claw and tooth marks, it is possible that the cat mistook it for the head of the snake, during the fight, serving as a distraction that may have given a crucial advantage to the anaconda
Idk where you even got a 29kg puma from, because it clearly saids it was 42kg, and the Anaconda (which was only around 4m) weighed 94kg with the Cougar in its stomach, so it likely was around 50kg~ animal or so.

^ Doubt the snake was weighed with the puma in situ, any evidence that was the case?

Read the article, it clearly shows the anaconda being put on the scale and you can see the cougar is still bulging from its stomach.

Does not necessarily follow that the published weight didn't take that into account, since it goes against norms.

yeah in the article and anconda died after few days due to several injuries! actually female puma attack on the tail of snake in shallow water,  puma mistook it for the head of the snake, during the fight, serving as a distraction that may have given a crucial advantage to the anaconda

It most likely dint because on the actual scale when it was being weighed you can still seen the cougar inside the anaconda, and you can even see them start to cut the Puma out afterwards, yet in the photo with the anaconda being weighed their was no cut mark.

So, you're just guessing then.

Not scientific, or proper procedure, is it.

It died due to infections and parasites from these injuries, it also died 16 days afterwards, and getting grabed by humans certainly dint help.

please read with focus Mr Smarty !
Macroscopic examination of the carcass revealed multiple injuries, most certainly inflicted during the fight with the puma. We cannot affirm how the meeting between the anaconda and puma started. However, the evidence suggested a significant fight, whereby the felid proved to be a formidable opponent to the reptile. There were several external claw and tooth injuries on the snake, on the head, mouth, along the back and tail, as well as serious internal injuries, including lacerations on the liver

The only reason a four meter long anaconda would weight 94 kilograms other than having a 42 kilogram cougar is in its belly is if it were morbidly obese. The snake equivalent of fat Albert.

No. It was longer, to begin with.
You're not taking into account/forgetting to include the missing section from the rear part of the snake.

I never denied that, it clearly brought up injuries, but it also went into detail of the several infections and parasites it had.

Except Anacondas over 5m long dont weigh that much.
