The evolution of amniotic development and the shelled egg enabled vertebrates to become fully terrestrial. These two evolutionary advances required the previous development of internal fertilization. In all other reptiles, males have either a penis as in turtles [order Testudines] and crocodiles [order Crocodyliaor Crocodilia] or hemipenes as in lizards and snakes [order Squamata].
The structure of the sound-transmitting apparatus in primitive snakes Scolecophidia, Henophidia is reviewed and compared with that of advanced snakes Caenophidia and of some fossorial lizards. Assuming a constant course of the chorda tympani, the ophidian stylohyal can be homologized with the intercalary cartilage of lizards while the cartilaginous distal portion of the ophidian stapes represents the internal process. The cladistic significance of the stapes-quadrate-articulation in the Henophidia and Caenophidia is discussed.
Snakes are coming out of hiding for the summer, and people across the country have found them in some weird places, like their cars and air vents. If they can push it, they'll push it to get into a place. O'Briant has been called to remove snakes from cars, floor vents, crawl spaces, dryers and other hiding spots inside a house. He said they'll usually go to warm places low to the ground, so you're not likely to find one in your bed or bathtub.
