A man with engineering know-how has invented a robot suit that gives snakes the ability to “walk with legs”.
Los Angeles-based YouTuber Allen Pan created a DIY device out of a long tube and four plastic “legs” attached to the controls.
To prove his followers that he was a snake lover, he said he “wanted to give snakes back their legs”.
He explained in his video that snakes had legs about 100 to 150 million years ago but had since evolved to the point where they could survive without them – and it’s thought to be due to a genetic mutation.
“I actually feel bad for snakes; they lost their legs and nobody is even trying to find them – except for me,” Allen explained.
“When any other animal has deformed legs, humanity comes together to spit in God’s face and we built that animal awesome new cyborg legs.”
The concept that Allen has is to have an apparatus that a snake “could choose to put on or take off”, so he used a long plastic open tube where the snake will be able to fit in.
