Question Extra Bones in Snakes

I have heard things regarding snakes having some extra bones in their bodies that may have been legs at one time. Is this factual?

i think there are some species that have remnants of pelvic girdles, but im not sure which ones. boas have spurs, but they arent bones, just tiny claw things.

Boids have the remenants of legs that manifest themselves as spurs.

I sure hope you were kidding about the horns on desert vipers reptiguy. Those are just special scales.
