Fossilized Snake With Two Legs Found

Researchers at the National Museum of Natural History, Paris were thrilled to finally confirm that a slab of Lebanese limestone depicts the body of a snake with two legs.

Researchers at the European Light Source (ESRF) in Grenoble, France used a high-powered super camera to validate their suspicions about the fossilized reptile.

Alexandra Houssaye, from the National Museum of Natural History, Paris, said that the X-ray technique is useful because it allows researchers to get an in-depth glimpse of the inner structure of the creature without damaging the specimen.

"We were sure he had two legs but it was great to see it, and we hope to find other characteristics that we couldn't see on the other limb," said Houssaye.

Known as Eupodophis descouensi, the reptile is 33 inches long and comes from the Late Cretaceous, about 92 million years ago.

“It’s very rare,” Houssaye said of the specimen. “There are only five or six species known, and there are only three species with a leg preserved
. So, it’s very unique.”

There it is. What do you think about it? I'm sure many people, who believe in the ancient Aramaic scriptures (especially the writings of Moshe) & many people, who believe in the mistranslations ("holy bibles") that were published after the prophets' writings were buried believe serpents used to have wings & legs too.

Anyway, this is a great discovery. A lot of rare animals & fossils (even "living fossils") have been found in recent-years.
