Titanoboa Snake 2

Commuters arriving and leaving the New York Grand Central Station will see one scary sight. A huge snake will be seen at the station. The good news is that the huge snake is not alive.

The full scale replica of the giant snake was unveiled at the commuter hub last March 22, 2012. The recently discovered species will have its official exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History in D.C. According to the Smithsonian spokesperson, Randall Kremer, the replica in New York is said to not only scare people but to allow science to communicate with them.

The giant snake was first discovered in a coal mine in Colombia back in 2005. Check out the cool and amazing photos of the Titanoboa replica above courtesy of acclaimed photographer Mark Von Holden of the Smithsonian Channel.
