Wow, how would you like to find this snake slithering around in your garden?

A fossil found in northeastern Colombia shows us the biggest snake ever. This serpentine wonder lived 60 million years ago, weighed in at 2500 pounds, measured in at 45 feet, and feasted on relatives of the crocodile.

To give you a little more perspective, this snake was longer than a city bus and weighed more than a bison (which this prehistoric wonder would have had no trouble making a meal of). Stats for Super-Sized Snakes Trending: Older & Average
