My opinion on that is they ARE lizards so they have adapted to their environment just like other lizards have done. Maybe for feeding reasons or perhaps defense against predators. Check it out on-line for a history of them. Good luck!

They are and have always been lizards. They are on a seperate path from snakes and just like monitors and iguanas they are lizards. They just happen to have a unique trait that tends to confuse us humans!

for more on this see my post here http://www.repticzone.com/forums/LeglessLizards/messages/1352175.html

They were CREATED as legless lizards. I have a contest, if someone can give me scientific evidence that legless lizards evolved from from ANYTHING, I will give you $100.00.

God created them through a process called evolution.

I fully believe in evolution, plenty of evidence to support it, and we see it in modern day through medicine and viruses. Case solved, legless lizards are lizards, just over time nature selectively chose traits that were more suited for their needs and legs were not important apparently. It must’ve worked since we still have them :P
on a side note, this was a purely scientific discussion, not a religious debate. Its a reptile forum, so lets keep it science and biology wise so we don’t spark and drama :)
Good luck guys
