    The Associated Press: Ancient fossil find: This snake could eat a cow!

    I've always been a fan of discoveries like this, goes to show how much the planet and the species have changed over a couple Hundred Million years ago.

    That's kinda cool. I assume it was a constrictor?

    Now that is a big snake! I would have loved to see that (from a distance of course). Kind of makes you wonder if there is still a few out there in distant remote parts of the world that have been untouched or explored by man.

    I'm almost certain there are still places like that. Or there could be places explored but left alone by humans, for whatever reason, that allows species to evolve more naturally. It would be interesting to find out (but maybe not Jurassic type explorations haha).

    More scaremongering from the media. Except this time I really am scared. They are extinct, right? :shifteyes:

    That is pretty amazing. There are plenty of remarkable animals in existance today but what I wouldn't give to take a peek at some of Earth's prehistoric lodgers.

    I'd bet there are critters like that more so in the ocean than in remote jungles. We've only really explored an astonishing 9-10% of the whole ocean. Theres definitely gotta be some wicked creatures hidden in some secluded parts out there. I'll bet those ones get that big or probably even bigger!

    I've often thought about that too. Who knows what is out there till we run across it. I still would have liked to have seen that big snake in real life. it would have been a sight to see.
