Titanoboa illustration

This is an artist’s perception of how the largest snake the world has ever known would have looked in its natural setting 60 million years ago. Partial skeletons of the giant, boa-constrictor-like snake named “Titanoboa” were found in Colombia by an international team of scientists and were studied at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the University of Florida campus. The illustration was prepared by Jason Bourque, a UF graduate student who was a member of the team.
