The Dolichosauria

 
     
 

A very singular Lacertilian found in the Chalk, and resembling an eel in form and size, has been described by Prof. Owen under the name of Dolichosaurus. It possesses an exceedingly elongated body, but is provided with limbs and with a distinct sacrum, consisting of two vertebrae. Its most remarkable peculiarity, however, lies in the number of its cervical vertebrae, which were not fewer than seventeen.
