They encounter Serone, a snake hunter, now without a boat and asks for them to help him. He says he knows where to find the tribe, so the team lets him on. In a mishap, Cale is bitten by a wasp, and is incapacitated. Serone takes charge of the boat, and the team becomes aware of his true intentions of catching a gigantic anaconda. They come across an abandoned boat, and while checking it out, the boat captain gets killed by the big snake. Serone sets up a trap to catch the snake, but the snake kills another crew member, the sound engineer Gary. The rest of the crew try to subdue Serone to stop his madness, ties him up, but he manages to kill another member of the team. Serone escapes. With only Terri and the cameraman Danny, and sick Cale left, they try to navigate their way out, only to be caught by Serone who has now set up an elaborate and bigger trap for the snake. Using Terri and Danny as bait, he waits for the snake to come. It comes, and a net is dropped, but the snake escapes and runs after Serone and eats him. Terri and Danny break free, and are chased, but Danny sets the animal on fire and it falls into the water. Exhausted, they lay on the edge of the water, the snake appears, but Danny hacks it with an axe. They retrieve Cale, and leave the scene behind.

Best part of story, including ending: The characters get picked off one by one and it's a modern monster movie.

Best scene in story: When they find the nest of baby anacondas.

Opinion about the main character: Terri's tough and acts more like Lara Croft vs. being a film director.
