Watch an amazing documentation on a giant snake which only exists in history. So far known as the largest snake ever to live on earth, Titanobia.
Can you spontaneously name, the biggest snake in the world today? Wait! I’ll give you a hint. This is a familiar blockbuster movie. Anaconda! If we consider it with the largest crocodile Cassius, weighing almost one ton, we could possibly spawn a new marvel antagony, dangerous than Thanos himself.
But come to think of it, these giants are literally babies, compared to one animal that once lived on earth for a long time. take them for example ChronoSaurus and Titanoboa.
Mystics does say, that these two predators were a threat to all walks of life, from the horizons of land habitats, to the deepest depth in the ocean belt. But what if this giant snake still existed today? Could we survive, or would it be the end of humanity so herein predicted?
Today, I’ll tell you about the ancient monster that terrorized everything in that time. You’ll learn when and where this gigantic snake lived, and then we’ll bring them to the present. you’ll see whether this giant will overpower our world, and if people will be able to put up a fierce battle against it.
Before turning on the time machine, let’s get to know our characters better. We’ll start with Titanoboa. This ancient snake lived about 58 million years ago, and according to scientists for at least 10 million years, it was the largest predator on the planet, its length reached 13 meters or 43 feet in its weight exceeded, a ton.
Can you imagine this giant, here’s an illustration for you.
If you lay two giraffes on the ground, then Titanoboa will still be longer. Or you can just look at these two vertebrae, the model on the left, belongs to the Anaconda, and on the right, Titanoboa. It turns out that the largest snake living today is half the size of the ancient reptile in with the mega snake could reach one meter, or three feet deep could easily swallow a young of potamus. True.
In ancient times, there were no hippos, it preferred to eat fish, and this monster could be found in dark swamps and rivers. In addition to fish, it could feast on crocodiles, it was a sophisticated killer. The giant monster attacked its victim and strangled it in its strong embrace, then the snake swallowed it whole and digested it for a long time.
The victim suffered a compression force comparable to one and a half times the weight of the Brooklyn Bridge. So, put in the numbers.
That’s 28 kilograms per square centimeter 400 pounds per square inch.
Even though the Chronosaurus was smaller in size, he was also a fairing bloodthirsty predator. It had wide open mouth full of many small teeth and speaks for itself and the size of the predators comparable to the dimensions of an orca, also called a killer whale, to be more precise. The Chronosaurus reached a length of more than 10 meters or 33 feet, and its weight could reach up to 12 times, give its appearance.
It was remotely similar to a modern crocodile only in a very enlarged version, and even their bytestring.
He’s a close comparison. He was also a skilled swimmer they probably attacked its prey from the depths. Chronosaurus had a very powerful rib cage for flippers, and a small tail, literally not at its big bleeding no chance for survival.
Chronosaurus couldn’t have encountered Titanoboa, they lived in different periods, and even perhaps left at different habitats, Chronosaurus could live in fairly cold southern seas, but Titanoboa loved a hot climate. This didn’t stop the two predators from instilling fear and terror into all living creatures in the area.
What If These Monsters Still Exist?
Now let’s imagine that these two monsters didn’t die out, and that they still peacefully coexist with us. Although, would it be peaceful, this is a big question, if Titanoboa survived to this day, it could well be found in the equatorial tropics. For example, Titanoboa would love the hot climate of Colombia, or neighboring countries like Venezuela, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, or Panama.
Obviously people would have to more carefully protect their homes from the intrusion of Titanoboa.
However, it’s unlikely that the snake could crawl unnoticed into a house, he would have no trouble, knocking out a window, or even breaking a door.
Fortunately, this behavior is still unusual for snakes, but all the same in order to protect themselves from intruders people would have to surround their homes with high voltage fences and a big stun gun under the pillow, just in case.
Noisy mega cities, a huge snake would not have a single chance of survival. Only if this thing doesn’t accidentally wind up somewhere under the heating main a comfort that a reptile might appreciate, but food in the form of rats would hardly suit it.
By the way, most likely she wouldn’t be interested in people as a food source. In horror films Anaconda often devours people.
However, in reality, it rarely attacks, a person can be assumed that its distant ancestor would also be indifferent to us, but for people Titanoboa could be a welcome trophy. Any zoo in the world would dream of getting such a valuable specimen, and it’s in would be a real hot and people who catch these huge snakes would become real national heroes.
As for the Super snake diet in our world, it would find something to eat, alligators turtles river dolphins would suit giant in all respects animals on land would also have a hard time giant armadillos, manatees, tapers, cougars, jaguars, Caymans and Brazilian otters would be endangered.
Sure, adults would be too big, so cubs, and young animals are what they need. Titanoboa wouldn’t mind, eating fish, since it’s a more familiar diet. As a result, the food chain would be broken.
Some animals would probably migrate to safer areas, the fun of the forest of Amazonia would be greatly impoverished, although insects and fungi, would start to flourish and evolve.
Very soon there’d be no trace of the once lush vegetation. Chronosaurus would hardly have liked life in our condition either in ancient times, even turtles were the size of a kitchen table, you just eat one and feel full all day. But such a monster would need about a dozen modern turtles.
And then, I still doubt it would be enough to eat. In addition to turtles, the ancient monster fed on sleazy. Oh sorry, but in our world, he’d have to look for an alternative, most likely, it would switch to large marine mammals, he wouldn’t be able to swallow a whale all at once, but in parts, then.
Sure, it could be completely in such a huge body would need tons of food like a giant meat grinder, it would sweep away everything in its path. People would suffer greatly due to a shortage of fish in the seas and oceans, fishing itself would be very risky. Due to the existence of an underwater hazard, ships would have to be built to be much more solid, and in the event of the extinction of whales, a climatic catastrophe would begin.
There would be nothing to extract 1000s of tons of carbon from the air in the underwater depths, that there would be a daily battle for life, given the size of the monster, and its ferocious disposition.
There could only be one winner, we’d have to forget about tourism and see traffic in the monsters habitat completely, this place would be marked on all maps in red, and anyone who dared to go there would practically write their own deaths and even take 10 of our head the most valuable skin than a Chronosaurus would have had its teeth, small and sharp like a saw.
They could cost more than the horns of a rhino today.
They’re one of the most expensive materials in the world, their price is about $65,000 per kilogram more expensive than gold. By the way, did you know that there’s a danger of the return of extinct animals to Earth?
I’m not joking right now, scientists don’t rule out the possibility. First of all, I’m talking about Titanoboa, there’s speculation that it lived at a temperature of 32 degrees Celsius.
That’s 90 degrees Fahrenheit. And given the growth rate of global warming such average temperatures can become a reality. I’m glad it will take millions of years. Would you like to see ancient monsters with your own eyes? In the comments.
