#1. Is this animal extinct?

Incorrect.  Titanoboa is in fact extinct. It lived in Columbia 58-60 million years ago. Not many animals can devour a crocodile, but the giant snake Titanoboa cerrejonensis was the beast for the job. With a length of almost 43 feet and weighing 2,425 pounds, the thickness of its body could reach up to a man’s waist. Titanoboa means “monster snake.” That name fits it just fine because, when thinking of the proper adjective to describe its massive size, “huge” is an understatement.

Categorized as a sugar alcohol, xylitol is used as a sugar substitute for diabetics and other people who want to avoid sugar, but still enjoy sweet treats. It can be found in most sugar free gum.
