Fossil of monster snake found in Colombia

Quote :
Scientists are reporting the discovery of the fossilized remains of the largest snake ever recorded — a 42-foot behemoth weighing more than a ton, according to an analysis in today's issue of the journal Nature.

Ostia! Mr. Green

Apparently is post-dinosaurs, so most probably this beast fed on big mammals. Amazing the comparison with a modern anaconda, this prehistoric monster was gigantic!!!!!!!! Shocked I can really visualize it pretty similar to the one from the film -minus the fangs-.

Still, it wasn't really that long, as modern pythons also can have that same lenght. But it's reasonable, 40 feet is enough I guess, for a creature that has no legs...

How long was the puppet from the movie?

Well, mostly because the pet was still young, surely it would have been longer with a nice diet of drugged virgins Mr. Green

So this TITANOBOA would have been fairly similar to the one in the film, minus the fangs study thumleft

Roger Moore killed a giant snake with a pen knife through the head in MOONRAKER Also Drax's dogs chased and killed the girl through the forest(rather like the cimmerian scenes). Too bad Dan didnt pick up in that and I did. Laughing
