The true figure doesnt actually matter. Lets just say its Pre the last Ice Age.
These snakes would have been around for as long as the Earth was in its Heat Cycle.
It evidently not modern, Snakes couldnt grow that large today becase its not warm enough and there isnt enough food probably for it to support itself. But in the past when the Heat Cycle was at a peak, dont forget the prey would have been much larger aswell.
