Titanoboa: Prehistoric Monster Snake (6 pictures)

Millions of years after the fall of the Dinosaurs lived a species of snake that is unimaginable, unbelievable, and truly mind-blowing.


60-58 millions years ago in the swampy jungles of Colombia, lived Titanoboa (meaning Titanic Boa): a massive 48 foot long, 2,500 pound snake. Disturbing isn’t it?

Titanoboa’s size could be attributed to the climate it lived in. Warmer climates usually meant more vegetation, which resulted in prey that often grew bigger than most that lived in cooler conditions.
