Titanoboa

2 replies 77 views Edited Sep 16, 2013

In the pantheon of predators, it's one of the greatest discoveries since the T-Rex: a snake 48 feet long, weighing in at 2,500 pounds. Uncovered from a treasure trove of fossils in a Colombian coal mine, this serpent is revealing a lost world of giant creatures.

Can't watch the video at the moment, but this sounds decently terrifying.
