Watch Titanoboa: Monster Snake
- 1 Season
Titanoboa: Monster Snake is a TV movie about a really, really big snake. If the snake did really exist, it existed about 58 to 60 million years ago. It may have become extinct 10 million years after the dinosaurs become extinct. This snake was the largest, the longest and heaviest snake ever found. In 2011, Charle Brinson and his team made a thirty-three foot long electrochemical, robotic version of the extinct snake. Its vertebrae were composed of high-strength aluminum. There were also forty hydraulic cylinders inside it. Someday, they plan to extend this robot to 49 feet. As a way to promote the TV movie appearing on April 1, 2012, the Smithsonian Channel unveiled a full-life-size replica of the forty-nine feet, 2,425 pound monster snake at Grand Central Station in New York City on March 22, 2012.
