Snakes could have evolved from lizards

Snakes could have evolved from lizards, according to X-rays that have been made of a fossil found in the rocks of Lebanon long ago and that was dated to 95 million years ago.

Recent studies carried out at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris show us that the Eupodophis descouensi, an ancient serpent of the region, had legs. One of them was visible, but now they have discovered a second hidden in the rock.

The leg structure made in 3D (Image), shows us that it is bent at the knee, has four ankles, but not the bones of the foot, thus confirming the theory that snakes are a form of evolution of ancient lizards of Earth.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
