Fawcett fueled rumors of anacondas swallowing cattle whole and picking men right out of canoes at night. He even claimed he once smelled a penetrating fetid odor emanating from one. " Fawcett also complained about the anacondas' melancholy wails at night a phenomenon never proven by scientists. Certainly a colorful figure, Fawcett never carried a radio during his expeditions, which didn't seem to matter since several spiritualists, including his wife, claimed to be in psychic contact with him.
