Wikipedia

  1. Joint snake

    A joint snake is a legendary creature of the Southern United States, the myth likely having spread elsewhere. Supposedly, the joint snake can break itself (or be cut) into pieces and will reassemble itself. It is said that if a piece of the snake is taken and the pocket knife used to cut the snake is set down in the place of the snake's piece, the knife will join up with the whole of the snake.

  1. joint snake

    A joint snake, also known as a glass snake or glass lizard, is a type of elongated legless lizard mistakenly believed to have the ability to break apart into pieces and reassemble itself when disturbed. This belief stems from the animal's ability to autotomize, or self-amputate, its tail to escape predators which sometimes breaks into multiple pieces. Due to their legless appearance, they are often mistaken for snakes. However, they are actually a part of the Anguidae lizard family.

It is said that if a piece of the snake is taken and the pocket knife used to cut the snake is set down in the place of the snake's piece, the knife will join up with the whole of the snake. The myth is probably based on legless lizards that can regenerate their tails after they are broken off. Such lizards are often called joint, or, more commonly, glass snakes. May also be a reference to the Hydra in Greek Mythology.
