The discovery of fossilised remains belonging to the world's largest snake has been reported in Nature journal.

Titanoboa was 13m (42ft) long - about the length of a bus - and lived in the rainforest of north-east Colombia 58-60 million years ago.

The snake was so wide it would have reached up to a person's hips, say researchers, who have estimated that it weighed more than a tonne. BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7868588.stm).

Holy asscrackers... This is why I'm glad the temperature and oxygen levels are lower now. Although, just like when outrunning a serial killer in a mask, you only have to run faster than your slowest friend.

I wish Satan would stop leaving these things underground; I'm really starting to believe in these giant lizards.
