95-Million-Year-Old Skull Fossil Points to 'Biblical Snake' with Hind Legs
A team of paleontologists discovered a wonderfully well-preserved snake skull in Argentina, shedding new light on the origin of the species.
From their findings, the team has deduced the snake had rear limbs and possibly evolved from giant lizards. This goes against the well-known belief that snakes come from small worm-like burrowing lizards.
The discovery and details of the fossil were published in the journal Science Advances.
