That's a VERY significant difference in size and mass.
Plus, did you notice they estimated the weight of the snake to be 2,500 pounds? That's 1 ton more than the largest anacondas. That's a BIG difference!
Right, its a significant difference, but not an OMG difference.
I mean, modern day man has produced 8 foot men, so...
I guess when I think ancient stuff I just expect big numbers,
so I was hoping for a 200 foot long snake or something lol
