By comparing the sizes and shapes of its fossilized vertebrae to those of extant snakes, researchers estimated T. cerrejonensis reached a maximum length of 12 to 15 m (40 to 50 ft), weighed about 1,135 kg (2,500 lb), and measured about 1 m (3 ft) in diameter at the thickest part of the body.

I'm looking out the window at the river right now, trying to imagine what to do if a 40' snake came slithering out of the woods. Fun stuff.

When I run Conan camapaigns, one of the first monsters I reach for is the giant snake. With so many of them slithering around Hyboria, how do you suppose common folk ever survive? :lol:
