Titanoboa is the new Fat Bear Week winner. While the titans of the future may get all the attention, palaeontologists have found evidence that giants once roamed the Earth. Consider this: Titanoboa, a member of the Boidae family, was a giant snake that lived during the Paleocene epoch in South America. It was thought to be around 12 to 14.3 meters (42-47 feet) long and estimated to weigh over a tonne. In fact, it was the top predator in the tropical South American jungle where it lived. Its enormous body fills the niche left by the extinction of the Dinosaurs.
