Ancient crocodile relative from the land of Titanoboa, world's largest snake: Researc

Did an ancient crocodile relative give the world's largest snake a run for its money? In a new study, researchers describe a new 20-foot extinct species discovered in the same Colombian coal mine with Titanoboa, the world's largest snake. The findings help scientists better understand the diversity of animals that occupied the oldest known rainforest ecosystem, which had higher temperatures than today, and could be useful for understanding the impacts of a warmer climate in the future.

Technically, Borneo contains the "oldest known rainforest ecosystem"...
Cool article though.
