Snakes - Good Luck Minis®
The natural history of snakes is shrouded in mystery. Unlike larger creatures, snakes have very slight skeletons, and the story of the past is often told in bones. The earliest known snake fossils date to the Jurassic period, around the time of the dinosaur Stegosaurus, but snakes could easily have appeared earlier without leaving a trace in the fossil record. In any case, debate rages over whether snake ancestors came from the sea or from land, or perhaps both. With over 3,000 species of snakes in the world today, they’ve proven quite prodigious, regardless of their origins.
