Smithsonian Channel unveiled a scientifically accurate life-size replica of Titanoboa, the biggest snake to have ever roamed the earth, in Grand Central Terminal March 22 to astonished commuters. The 48-foot-long behemoth lived 60 million years ago during time just after dinosaurs became extinct. The snake then traveled to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., where it will go on display beginning March 30. Titanoboa: Monster Snake, a two-hour television event, premieres April 1 on Smithsonian Channel.
