Hey you Peoples! So anyway there has been a sighting of a giant snake called a Titanoboa. If you want to watch the documentary about the giant extinct snake go on YouTube and search for Titanoboa: Monster Snake-(Full Episode) Very interesting!

The Titanoboa lived 60-65 million years ago, and was the largest, longest, heaviest snake ever discovered in the world. Which broke the record of President Roosevelt's record of a snake 30 ft long. He promised he will reward the person with the largest snake ever. Apparently nobody did before he died. The scientists also found out that the giant snake lived in the hot climates. Which are the tropics and today the big snakes live in the tropics while the smaller ones lived near the equator. If the temperature rised from global warming scientists think that the big snakes in the tropics will finally grow bigger and become the legendary Titanoboa, which is almost 40 ft long. Actually the size of a your bedroom. The snake was found in the Cerreejón Formation of the coal mines of Cerreejón in La Guajira, Columbia. Only few fossils of the Titanoboa were found. This snake was recovered in 2009. The bones were took at a University of Florida with Carlos Jaramillo, a paleobotanist from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute of Panama. The research team was led by Jonathan Bloch. Soon in 2011, Charlie Brinson and his team created a 10 ft long Titanoboa robot. Their plans are to make it bigger to it's full length. Soon they made a replica of the 40 ft long Titanoboa. Then it was a promotion on Live TV.

Here is the link to find the Titanoboa video on YouTube. For your interest. (1 hour long)
