    All snakes have tiny bones along their body where the legs would be, they haven`t evolved them totally away yet.

    Snakes are evolved from ancient lizards and they commonly have vestigial legs which are not obvious from the outside but can be seen on an x-ray. What has happened to this particular snake is pretty much what happens when humans are born with tails. (this really happens!)

    Another fantastic demonstration of the fact of evolution. :)

    way to get all sciency on us TheNineXXX, but i got a more religious play to share

    When God learned of Satan`s tempting on Eve in the form of a serpent, God punished the serpent by removing its legs and forcing it to crawl on the ground for eternity.

    maybe the snakes are beginning to repent!

    My guess is it ate something with feet (it does have a bulge there) and one of the feet poked through it`s body. Either that or it lives next to blinkey the fish.

    My "Guess" would be that it ate a lizard. The lizard, before it died, was able to claw it`s way through and get it`s leg sticking out. After it died, the snake healed up around the leg and built up a calcium deposit that you see bubbling out around the leg. Given a few more weeks and I`m sure the leg would have rotted away and dropped off.

    The skin tone on the leg matches the scale patterns on the rest of the body. My guess would be that the snake`s genome still contained the code to produce arms and legs, and an evolutionary mishap led to it accidentally growing one.

    She found it supposedly climbing up her wall.

    Now, we don`t just have to worry about snakes. We have to worry about them climbing the wall, then waiting above our door frames for us to walk in the room.

    Okay-a few problems: as a herpeteculturist, (reptile-guy), this sure looks, from the markings, like a standard bull snake, or gopher snake-the saddles and colors are plain. Notice around the leg area, an obvious bulging that is very unnatural-it loks like either a fake, or it swallowed something with a large leg that tore out of the side and killed the snake. I doubt it was crawling along the wall-it looks like it would be almost impossible to evem move on the ground, much less the wall. Fake or bad story, but not what it is reputed to be.

    Poor thing. Why`d she have to beat it to death?

    ------

    I`m pretty sure I would have reacted the same way, and I love animals.

    She was half asleep at the time and there was this THING crawling towards her - she panicked.

    My sister`s hamster escaped from it`s cage once and climbed on my bed in the middle of the night, I was half-asleep and my brain couldn`t quite comprehend what was happening, I thought it was a rat & I freaked out.
