ANSWER: A shifty halfback on a football team Is often called a "snake-hipped" runner. However, most snakes have no hips, because they have no legs. And a few species that have rudimentary legs do not use them. Most mala members of the boa constrictor and python families have two small spur-like hind lags which are only partially developed. Zoologists say this indicates that the ancestors of these snakes — and probably of alt others — had legs at one time. They explain the present body form probably developed because snakes lived among dense vegetation where legs were not of much use. Snakes crawl or swim swiftly because their backbones contain as many ae 300 small bones, or vertebrae, and bends easily. It progresses by moving Hs body and pushing against the ground or water with each curve. FOR YOU TO DO: There are about 2,400 kinds of snakes in the world, but only a few of them are poisonous. By studying pictures learn to identify any poisonous one found in this country. (Buddy Dennis of West Milton, Ohio, won $10 for this question. If you have one, send it to Violet Moore Higglns, AP Newsfeatures, in care of this paper. Tomorrow: Where is the Garden of Eden?)
