Indeed, the snake is but a lizard who has substituted this wriggling motion for the use of legs altogether; and we can trace a gradual succession from the four-legged true lizards, through snake-like forms with two legs and wholly rudimentary legs, to the absolutely limbless serpents themselves. But to flying birds, on the contrary, a long bony tail is only an inconvenience. All that they need is a little muscular knob for the support of the tail-feathers, which they employ as a rudder in guiding their flight upward or downward, to right or left.< Less

How does a "normal" girl from Iowa, pursuing her personal fortune on a remote island inhabited by Stone Age bushmen and largely untouched by civilization, get mistaken for a jungle spirit... More > and end up as the "Queen of the Cannibals?" It's surely not the fault of her debauched Australian pilot, who warned her not to go traipsing off into the highlands, where life is cheap and uninvited guests are fed their own fingers and toes as hors d'oeuvres.
