MEGA SERPENTE

Stay far away from this enormous Fossil Friday! Pictured are the ribs and vertebrae of Madtsoia bai, or “Cow Valley [snake]” which lived about 55 million years ago, during the Early Eocene. Some extinct snakes grew to remarkable size. This is a section from the trunk of Madtsoia, a snake whose body would have reached over 30 feet (9.2 meters) in length! In some extinct snakes, small spurs near the tail are ancient remnants of the hind limbs found in snake ancestors.This fossil is located in the Museum’s Hall of Vertebrate Origins.
