That's a big snake

By comparing the sizes and shapes of its fossilized vertebrae to those of extant snakes, researchers estimated that the T. cerrejonensis reached a maximum length of 12 to 15 metres (40 to 50 ft), weighed about 1,135 kilograms (2,500 lb), and measured about 1 metre (40 in) in diameter at the thickest part of the body.
