Mega-Snake Fossil Found in Columbia
The fossilised remains of the world’s largest snake, a 15-metre, one tonne behemoth that included crocodiles among its favourite foods, have been found in a coal mine in northern Colombia.
The Titanoboa cerrejonensis, meaning titanic boa from Cerrejon, the region where the remains were found, roamed - or rather slithered – the Earth about 60 million years ago, scientists say.
Their findings are based on 180 fossils of vertebrae and ribs, which they believe came from more than two dozen individual snakes.
