A Google Maps find is causing a stir online. Because what is meandering off the coast of France is gigantic. We’ll tell you what’s behind the giant snake.
A monstrous find is circulating on Google Maps.
The skeleton of a giant snake can be seen off the coast of France.
But this need not worry you.
If you have a snake phobia, you should not necessarily go on holiday to the French municipality of Saint-Brevin-les-Pins. A look at Google Maps already shows this.
If you enter the coordinates 47.26788765634558, -2.170786978926952 and activate the satellite view, you will discover a primeval monster right off the coast. The skeleton of a giant snake rises out of the water here.
But don’t worry, the object called Serpent d’Océan is not a fossil, but an art installation. It comes from the Chinese-French artist Huang Yong Ping.
