I don't have the article abstract at the moment, but in
case this news release for the Journal of Vertebrate
Paleontology has not been mentioned yet:


http://www.newswise.com/articles/bright-idea-sheds-light-
on-snake-legs

  suggests that snakes lost their legs by growing them more slowly
  or for a shorter period of time

Would this be considered neotenous in nature?
