Abstract

a monospecific genus of marine snakes in the suborder Serpentes and family Simoliophiidae. About 3 feet long, H. terrasanctus is especially notable for still having hindlimbs, including partial feet. Known from an almost complete skeleton, it figures prominently in the ongoing debate about the origins of snakes. Israel, Late Cretaceous, 94 Ma.
