Why I Believe Dragons Might Have Existed...

(please keep in mind, me saying I believe dragons existed is me being facetious; however I do believe whoever came up with the concept of a dragon, did get the idea from looking at big azz snakes...hence this blog...keep reading)

So The Bestest finds some of the weirdest and random stuff online...today he mentioned something about a snake that lived 60 million years ago that was 45 feet long and 2,500 lbs...and ate crocodiles for meals. I don't know what God was up to creating freaks of nature like this but "he" officially gets the crown for "Doing It Big" and "Doing the Most". It is fossils like these that make me feel like before God thought to create humans, this planet was his playground for experiments. Think about dinosaurs...they were terrifyingly huge too. Humans didn't stand a chance against abominations like this. Take that word with a grain of salt. Anything God created isn't really an abomination but I sure am glad I wasn't roaming the dirt roads or rainforest when these things existed.

I know this picture is small as hell (look below) but that picture is supposed to show you how big the Titan Boa was. It was reported that their bodies could get as wide as the length it takes to get from your feet to your waist, on a full grown human adult.

copy and paste this link so you can see a larger version of this picture:

So look at that dragon picture again...remove the arms, legs, lil spots of fur, horns, and them little things hanging from its nose and what do you have? That big azz snake up there. I'm just saying.

I sure am glad this is 2009 and snakes don't get that big anymore. Granted I know they still get huge because of crazy shat like that little boy in Cambodia who has a pet snake that's 13 feet long.
Let's hope global warming doesn't start causing things to grow like they've been pumped full of Hulk juice. Read the article about the Titan Boa and you'll see why I said that. It mentions where it lived and what it's environment was like; warmth had a lot to do with it.

Now that I've made your skin crawl and I've scared the living bejeezus out of everyone, I'll start doing some work...and finish my coffee.

LOL its funny you made this post. Because Im fiending for sunday to watch the discovery channel when they talk about how turkeys used to be as vicious as raptors and whales were once wolf like creatures. I would be so shook to have lived back then.

That sounds good! I might have to record that on the DVR!!! Where would be the safest place to live though with creatures like this around? I'd be terrified to do anything LOL

Ms. Independent said...

I saw that story yesterday and I still don't know. Fossil evidence or not...It's hard to imagine a 45ft 2500 pound snake at all in my mind. One is bad enough, but thinking of a time when they were just in abundance all over the place like that is just mind boggling.

I kinda think someone is playing around with Science just for entertainment purposes lol.

I should check this out!

I swear some people have breath that is so bad they might as well be breathing fire...

@ Ms. Independent: do you believe in dinosaurs? if not, no need to read any further LOL if yes, well this snake shouldn't be unbelievable LOL I don't think there were so many they were ruling the land but I don't think it's a stretch to think they existed. That little boy in Cambodia had a 13ft long one and I don't believe it was full grown. 13ft? That's BIG AS HELL, science or not LOL

@ Mick: I agree...my face was almost melted off this morning by a coworker...

Mr. Jolla said...

LOL @ J.O...I wouldn't come out of the house/cave/underbrush/swamp edges for SHIT! "Hey...does that caveman who kills the deer and rabbits deliver?"

asia kismet said...

yeah i remember watching like nature or something about anacondas and they're huge. i think the one they found and measured was in thailand and i swear it was way bigger than 13 ft. yeah i don't doubt bout the boy with the pet snake...my ganny used to tell me stories about people in cambodia who had tigers and stuff as pets.

@ Jolla: It was a land creature (for the most part). You think staying in yo little indigenous rain forest brush would have saved you? That thing would have eaten you with one flicker of it's forked tongue...in yo sleep.

I'd have been looking for some tree with jagged branches to live in. I would have invented tree fishing cause the ground wouldn't look so safe with that thing slithering around LOL

@ asia: This guy named Kaufman came in our class when I was in the 1st grade and brought a boa constrictor for us to pet. We had to put 8 desks together for it to be able to lay out straight. Some idiot kid picked it up and tried to wrap it around his neck so that kind of put a monkey wrench in our snake time but yeah...these things get huge. The dude could barely hold it himself it was so heavy.

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
