Legless Lizards: They’re not snakes, even though they look like it!

What looks like a snake in the road turns out to be an Eastern Glass Lizard, or legless lizard. They might look like snakes, but they’re not snakes: they are lizards with eyelids, ear, openings, and inflexible jaws.  They don’t move as fluidly as snakes, though, and you can see it in the way their movements are more jerky as they cross our paved shell roads. This video shows footage of a black racer eating a legless lizard.
