WASHINGTON - A prehistoric monster snake the length of a school bus will go on display at The Smithsonian.

The exhibit features a life-size replica of Titanoboa.

When the snake was alive, it weighed 2,500 pounds and was 48 feet long.

It was found near fossilized plants, giant turtles and other creatures dating back to more than 60 million years ago. The exhibit opens tomorrow in Washington.
