God did not create animals that move on wheels but men use wheels quite efficiently, thank you. (Cell motors do have efficient rotating tails, it is true.) In the spiritual world Ezekiel sees in his vision creatures equipped with rotating wheels. For us modern people it is very difficult to visualize his technical description - are the wheels part of the beings or independent of them?
As I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the ground beside each creature with its four faces. This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel. As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the creatures faced; the wheels did not change direction as the creatures went. Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes all around.
When the living creatures moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the living creatures rose from the ground, the wheels also rose. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, and the wheels would rise along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When the creatures moved, they also moved; when the creatures stood still, they also stood still; and when the creatures rose from the ground, the wheels rose along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.

Evolution biologist do suggest that snakes have somehow lost the legs they once had but that is another story.
So the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this,
“Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
Genesis 3:14 NIV

All movers under the power of two-legged ones
Waters are teeming with living swimmers with all kinds of fins and tails and systems for moving from crabs to medusa and whales. All sorts of legless snakes, worms crawl on land, birds fly in the air on their feathered wings - or run on their two feats fast as a car. Frogs have legs specialized for jumping and some even climb to trees and kangaroos know how to jump too.
The Creation story in Genesis does not count legs but talks about moving in water, on land and in air and about the absolute power given to humans to do what they want with all of them
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”And so it happened.
Genesis 1:26 NIV
