How snakes lost a blueprint for making limbs. When researchers inserted the snake DNA into mice, the animals developed truncated limbs, suggesting that a critical stretch of DNA lost its ability to support limb growth during snake evolution. Snakes lost their limbs over 100 million years ago, but scientists have struggled to identify the genetic changes involved.

'Hobbit' species did not evolve from ancestor of modern humans, research finds. their findings support another popular theory: that Homo floresiensis was in fact far more primitive than Homo erectus and had characteristics more similar to Homo habilis, which lived between 1.65m and 2.4m years ago, and which is the most ancient representative of the human genus. “We can be 99% sure it’s not related to Homo erectus and nearly 100% it isn’t a malformed Homo sapiens.”
