Experience Engineer Makes Snake 'Walk' By Constructing Four Robotic Legs (Photos,Video)

Allen Pan, a self-described snake lover and engineer, has created a robot that allows snakes to "walk."

There is no proof to date that four-legged snakes have ever appeared in the wild. When a promising fossil was first unearthed in 2015, it first excited scientists, but it later emerged to be a lizard.

Pan, who had a fascination with snakes, visited a nearby pet store to watch lizards in order to learn how snakes should move.

Then he built a tube-based enclosure with four artificial legs that the snake could climb aboard and use to walk thanks to the robotic limbs.

In order to test his work, Pan went to the home of a local snake breeder to find a reptile he can fit into the robot.

‘When any other animal has deformed legs, humanity comes together to spit in God’s face, and we build that animal awesome new cyborg legs,’ Pan tells the camera in a video that has picked up over 2.5 million views on YouTube in just two days.

‘But nobody loves snakes enough to build them robot legs. Nobody except for me. Snake lover: Allen Pan.’

It is believed that snakes did once walk upon the land around 150 million years ago

A study published in 2016 pointed out that some snakes, like pythons, do retain the tiny vestiges of legs as two small bumps on either side of their pelvis.
