On Sunday, February 15, 2009, Columbia Today is reporting that a giant snake is terrifying farmers in the north Colombia department of Córdoba. Eyewitnesses say the snake has a size never seen in the region.
According to Caracol Radio, the residents of villages near the swamp of Betancí are scared of the snake they say is 12 meter (39 feet) long and approximately 20 centimeters (8 inch) thick.
Locals have reported no accidents with the snake, but are terrified and called on local authorities to catch the reptile before anyone gets hurt and to return calmth to the communities.
It will be recalled that only ten days ago the international media was full of news of the discovery of a giant fossil snake. The colossal newly discovered snake Titanoboa cerrejonensis (above) was found in Colombia.
