Re: New Limbed Cretaceous Snake
From this week's Nature:
The name of the new snake is _Najash rionegrina_, "najash" being
derived "[f]rom Hebrew *Najash*, the legged biblical snake".
In case there are any Hebrew scholars out there, I'm curious: What does
the <j> in "najash" correspond to in Hebrew? Yod?
