When Eve screwed up and spoke to the snake in the Garden of Eden, it had legs. This is what the Bible tells us. Now scientists have described what they say is the first known fossil of a four-legged snake (which was hidden for decades) that stunned scientists (of course)—and is definitely igniting controversy. The world’s first 4 legged known snake discovered in Brazil, proves that snakes walked on foot, instead of crawling on their bellies. This is exactly what the Bible declared in Genesis 3:14, that snakes had legs. Here is the photo of the illustrated portrait of the 4 legged snake:
“Looks like a snake to me,” says Jacques Gauthier of the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University. “The long body and reduced limbs, along with the bony supports in the pelvis for lymph hearts to pump blood back to the heart, are consistent with being a snake,” he says.

The fossil had resided in a private collection for several decades before it gained the attention of team member David Martill of the University of Portsmouth. He stumbled across the specimen during a field trip with students to Museum Solnhofen in Germany. No notes about when or where it was collected are available, the researchers say. But certain characteristics of the limestone that entombed the fossil, as well as the distinct orange-brown color of the bones themselves, strongly suggest it came from a particular area of northeastern Brazil, Longrich says.
The 20cm snake lived about 113 million years ago, at the same time as many dinosaurs
While the evolutionists claim that snakes came from marine lizards, the new discovery buries and debunks the old theory, and now they say that this suborder may have ‘evolved’ from burrowing, rather than marine, ancestors. In other words, the snake has always been a land creature that seem to have devolved to loosing its legs (while on land) and is in fact as scientists now conclude “an ancestor of modern-day snakes” which:
maintains many classic snake features, such as a short snout, long braincase, elongated body, scales, fanged teeth and a flexible jaw to swallow large prey. It also maintains the typical vertebrae structure seen in modern-day snakes that allows for the extreme flexibility required to constrict prey. The main, glaring difference is Tetrapodophis‘s four limbs
So the only difference between this ancient snake and the modern one is the legs.
