It is said that anacondas can grow up to 30 feet long and have the ability to directly swallow animals like goats or deer. But do you know that in the era of dinosaurs, there were even bigger and giant snakes than anaconda, which are known as Titanoboa.
Titanoboa is considered to be the largest snake on earth. Some people have named it ‘Monster Snake’ after seeing its vastness. It is said that they were so big that they could swallow even a giant crocodile present in today’s era.
It is believed that Titanoboa snakes were about 50 feet long and four feet wide, while their weight was up to 1500 kg. When excavated in Colombia in 2009, many giant fossils of Titanoboa were found.
You will be surprised to know that this giant snake is named after Titanic ship Titanic, because the way Titanic was the largest of the ships, in the same way Titanoboa was also the largest of the snakes.
Although it is believed that these giant snakes became extinct along with the dinosaurs, but some scientists believe that this snake is still present somewhere in the Amazon River. However, this has not been confirmed yet.
