Whoa boa!

Scientists have found fossils of 45-foot giant snakes in Colombia, and aptly named the species Titanoboa cerrejonensis. To provide some perspective, the average python measures about 20 feet in length. The Titan boa also weighed a whopping 1.25 tonnes, while the average anaconda weighs about 200 kg. Monster snake indeed!
