Are living snakes diphyletic?
Seems like the tiny burrowers (blind snakes) are more like amphisbaenians and
the larger non-burrowers are more like varanids.
I know about the rings, and the scales and the DNA. I'd like to know about the
osteo-differences and key taxa I should be looking at.
The morphological variation in the burrowers is pretty incredible...
