  1. That’s cool, I wonder where they found it. I couldn’t tell the head from the tail though, it has no head! Please show a better picture!

  2. I’m not sure i believe that 65 MILLION years a go there was a snake that big. Sorry to burst your bubble but the bible says the earth is only 6 or 7 THOUSAND years old…look it up.

  3. I totally agree with Joboruebke. And if you read the Bible you might too! The snake probably existed but NOT 65 MILLION years ago.
