Titanoboa: Monster Snake Unveil at Grand Central Terminal

The discovery of Titanoboa, the largest snake the world has ever seen, was made by a team of scientists working in one of the world’s largest open-pit coal mines at Cerrejon in La Guajira, Colombia. This 2,500 pound, 48 foot long prehistoric snake was found near fossilized plants, giant turtles and crocodiles dating back to the Paleocene epoch, more than 60 million years ago, when the world’s first known rainforest existed, and dinosaurs no longer ruled the earth.
