• Observed on the changes in the body shape of a snake. • Changes in land formation occurred and snakes had to pass through narrow places • The snake had to crawl because of its need and later on transformed the body of the snake to an elongated form.

• The traits and characteristics were passed on its offspring. • The characteristics are being inherited by the present form species.
