    Mother of Five Scared Straight After Heart Attack in her 40s
    The Titanoboa replica at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History

    The Smithsonian is making plenty of room for its newest resident.

    The Museum of Natural History is welcoming Titanoboa, a 48-foot snake that weighed 2,500 pounds and is the largest snake ever discovered.

    Don’t worry, it’s just a life-like replica.

    The giant snake is believed to have roamed (slithered?) the earth 60 million years ago. Its fossil was found several years ago in a coal mine in Colombia.

    The Titanoboa will be on display at the museum until January 2013 and is also the focus of a new Smithsonian Channel documentary called “Titanoboa: Monster Snake” that airs on Sunday.
