According to natives in Central and South America, the Minhocão is a 20 to 50 meter long black scaly serpent or worm living in the forests. They believe it to be a burrowing creature that lives in caves beneath the jungle floor. Cryptozoologist Karl Shuker has speculated that the The Minhocão is a caecilian because it fits the scaly black description. However, caecilians are limbless Serpent-like amphibians which strongly resemble worms but only get up to 1.5 meters (4 ft 11 in) in length. The father of cryptozoology, Bernard Heuvelmans, thought that the creature could be a glyptodont which may have survived the mass extinction of megafauna became extinct at the end of the last ice age. The problem with that theory is that glyptodonts resemble large armadillos with medieval maces at the end of their tails and in no way resemble serpents. Still others speculate that the Minhocão could be an extant Titanoboa, a 12.8 m (42 ft) snake which they believe is a descendant of other Titanoboa’s that survived extinction 58 to 60 million years ago.
