They are found in two different continents and that is the reason you will not find them coming together at any stage. But, as they possess some common features and at the same time have some different traits as well, therefore a comparison is always drawn. Moreover, they are also considered to be the most deadly of all the reptiles and if you by any chances you come closer to them, then it is highly that you will not stay to share the experience with others.
If you take the average height of a man to be 5ft. then the snakes are almost 18ft. in length. The lengthy Green Anaconda that has been captured till date was in Brazil and it was of almost 17ft. long. Anacondas have the potential to kill the pythons and eat them up and they do that at regular interval. When you compare the lengths of Green Anaconda and King Cobra you will see that the King Cobras are more than 18 ft. long. The venom potential of king Cobra is much more powerful than others because it has the capacity of killing a big elephant with a single bite. The venom that is passed on to the body of an elephant on a single bite is strong enough to bring down such a big animal within a matter of 3 hours, in case the bite is placed on its trunk.

Green Anaconda is said to be way heavier than that of King Cobra, so it is said that Anaconda has the power to crush the King Cobra. But, on the contrary, if King Cobra bites Green Anaconda, then it will be finished within a matter of time because it is not immune to the venom of King Cobra and this can be proved from the fact that King Cobra does digest smaller pythons easily.
King Cobra has quick reflexes as compared to that of Green Anaconda, but the mass of Green Anaconda is unimaginable because it weighs around 550 pounds and the diameter is about 12 inches. King Cobra only weighs 20 pounds, so that is the reason they are more agile and swiftly turns to capture the prey. The anaconda crushes its prey to death, but on the other hand King Cobra’s venom of 1/5 oz. has the potential to kill almost as many as 20 people.
