13 meters long monster fossil snake found!
Scientists have recently unearthed in Columbia a giant snake which they believe has lived between 58 and 60 million years ago.
The giant snake would have weighed 1,140 kilograms (2,500 pounds) and measured 13 meters (42.7 feet).
"At its greatest width, the snake would have come up to about your hips. The size is pretty amazing," Geologist David Polly, who identified the position of the fossil, said in a statement.
This is the first time that such biggest snake has been found in the earth.
The size of the monster snake suggests that it would devour dozens of animals a day.
