Thai veterinarians have operated on a 10-year-old anaconda to remove a large tumour from near its heart.

The snake was anaesthetised for the seven-hour operation, Doctors at Klongluang Animal Hospital had to cut through the skin and abdominal cavity wall in order to reach the tumour, which weighed 1kg (2lb).

Tissue samples have been sent for tests to determine if the snake has cancer.
