    Some 60 million years ago, well after the demise of the dinosaurs, a giant relative of today’s boa constrictors, weighing more than a ton and measuring 42 feet long, hunted crocodiles in rain-washed tropical forests in northern South America, according to a new fossil discovery.

    The fossil find — a batch of super-sized vertebrae pulled from an open-pit coal mine in northeast Colombia — is remarkable enough just as a paleontological extreme. The species, given the name Titanoboa cerrejonensis, is now the largest known snake species ever discovered.

    The discovery of giant snake fossils in northeast Colombia may help clarify how hot the tropics became during an era when the planet was much warmer than it is now.

    But that's impossible brotha James. The Bible says the earth is only 6-10,000 years old. When facts contradict the Bible you have to change the facts. Cuz you cant't change the Bible.
