Recently, scientists have discovered a fossilized turtle, whose shell could easily be mistaken for a boat.
Only the shell has a length of 170 inches, as the average height of a man. Animal skull is the size of a football with a solid jaw allowing him to eat almost anything. Fossilized remains of giant animals have been discovered in a coal mine in Colombia.
The animal lived 60 million years ago and was named Carbonemys cofrinii.
Experts say the discovery is the first example of gigantism found among freshwater turtles. Also, experts say that the giant reptile is likely to be adjacent to the largest snake ever discovered, Titanoboa, roaming the current territory of Colombia.
Therefore, to 5 million years after the extinction of the dinosaurs, giant reptiles still exist in swampy regions of South America.
