Prehistoric Megabeasts

A mining operation in Cerrejon, northern Colombia has revealed a prehistoric world teaming with giant creatures. The biggest of them all was Titanoboa: a 43-foot snake, the largest that ever lived. No other creature could match Titanoboa for size or strength... or so it was thought. New discoveries in Cerrejon suggest that Titanoboa's rule was challenged by a giant crocodilian. This documentary follows scientists as they get to grips with the size of this animal and uncover what made it so successful. Close analysis of fossils and scientific experiments reveal unmatched hunting prowess. So which was the king of this ancient world, gigantic snake or ferocious crocodile?
