Carolinas Snake Invasion

Posted By ShoutCarolina,Date: 02.08.2009

Snakes, snakes, snakes! Seems that everything you hear this days is about snakes. Well they deserve it. Snakes come in all shapes and sizes. They’re excellent climbers, swimmers, runners and even jumpers. Above all they’re the ultimate killing machine.

Just recently, giant Titanoboa vertebrae were found in the tropical rain forests of northern Colombia.

The now extinct Titanoboa, known as the largest snake to ever lived, was long as a school bus and thick as a barrel. He weighed over a ton and his spinal column bones were 5 inches across, twice the size of today’s giant Anaconda!

TV stations are buzzing about the Burmese Python invasion in South Florida.
