The findings, outlined in the journal Paleontology, suggest that members of these two predatory species might have fought to the death 60 million years ago. Titanoboa measured an incredible 42 feet long. (“Sue,” the famous Tyrannosaurus rex specimen housed at the Field Museum, was about that long too.)
It sounds like the huge croc-like animal had an advantage over the snake, though. Its jaws alone were incredibly formidable.
