Actually I'm interested in just how high they could rear their heads up before it put too much strain on their bones.
The documentary also alluded to the notion that they might even have had difficulty breathing under their own weight while on land, I noted.
Okay, a boa seldom raises its head above 2 feet AGL during strikes. They like grabbing critters' legs because they can't kick them with that limb. The Titanoboa, if it had a similar philosophy/strategy, would want to be about 4-6 AGL minimum, I think, for the really big critters. However, as it would have trouble swallowing a baluchitherium I'd think 4 feet would be enough.
