Traveling Exhibit: Titanoboa: Monster Snake | January 26th - August 11th 2013
Florida Museum of Natural History scientists recently discovered 60-million-year-old remains of the largest snake in the world, Titanoboa cerrejonensis, in a Colombian coal mine. Measuring 48 feet long and weighing 2,500 pounds, this massive predator could crush and devour a crocodile! The new exhibition Titanoboa: Monster Snake tells the incredible story of this massive creature. Featuring a full-scale model of Titanoboa and clips from a Smithsonian Channel documentary, the exhibition delves into the discovery, reconstruction and implications of this enormous reptile. Fossil plants and other animals found at the site also reveal the earliest known rain forest, teeming with life and dating to the Paleocene, the lost world that followed the demise of the dinosaurs.
