(newser.com)—(Newser) – Scientists have created the most comprehensive family tree of snakes to date, and the ancestor at the very top looked different than the snakes we know today in one noticeable way: It “had tiny hind limbs, with complete ankles and toes,” says a Yale researcher in a post at Eureka Alert. The legs probably weren’t at all useful in terms of getting around, however, he tells the New York Times. They were more like “remnants” of hind legs. Another key finding: The researchers say this ancestral snake evolved on land, not water. They think it was slithering around the Southern Hemisphere about 128 million years ago, hunting soft-bodied prey in the forest by night, reports LiveScience.
