Living Planet Aquarium staff members Karen Sprague, right Jocelyn Haley, Brian Marquez, and Chris Barela hold the aquarium's anaconda while she is measured in Sandy on Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013.

The aquarium is in the process of moving all its animals in preparation for the opening of the new site in Draper that is expected to open in mid to late-December of this year. The 8-year-old anaconda measured 14 feet and 2 inches.
