An eagle-eyed TikTok user managed to find a giant skeleton and Bigfoot on Google Maps while trying to make a video for his followers.
TikTok account @googlemapsfun spend their days scouring Google Maps trying to find weird sights picked up by the street view cameras for their 8.1 million followers.
Having previously found strange abandoned buildings, cars doing weird manoeuvres and unsuspecting people on the streets, followers got particularly excited to find an unexplained skeleton on street view.
In a recent clip, the account posted a video with some of the “creepiest things Google Maps recorded without knowing it”.
The clip has been viewed over two million times and has thousands of commenters excited at the findings.
Firstly, the clip shows a giant “Bigfoot” captured on camera in the woods in Russia. Next, strangely, the user seems to have discovered a 30m long snake skeleton in France that can be seen from Google’s satellites.
The user suggests the skeleton is of an extinct Titanoboa snake and posted a video of the animal, with the voiceover: “Somewhere in France, we can see something giant you can only see with satellites.
“Hidden on Google Earth, users believe this to be a giant snake. It’s about 30 meters long and bigger than any snake caught before.”
Excited TikTokers went online to fact check, only to find that the skeleton is not what it seems.

Snopes revealed that there is a snake skeleton in Saint-Brevin-les-Pins, a French city on the West Coast. But, disappointingly, it is an art instillation made of metal.
The sculpture was made by Chinese artist, Huang Yong Ping, and measures at 130 metres long. It is known well locally and called Le Serpent d’Océan and is only visible when the tide is out.
A local tourist website said: “Since June 2012 a huge snake, the work of the Chinese artist Huang Yong Ping, emerges on the beach of Mindin.
“Its skeleton appears with each tide, resembling an archaeological excavation and its movement makes it look alive. Don’t miss it!”
