... of their sole, such as living crocodylians, intermetatarsal mobility offers the potential for a continuum of reconfiguration within the foot itself. Alligator hindlimbs are capable of postural extremes from a belly sprawl to a high walk to sharp turns – how does the foot morphology dynamically accommodate...

... on the face and body of crocodilians and documented related behaviors for an alligatorid ( Alligator mississippiensis ) and a crocodylid ( Crocodylus niloticus ). Each of the ISOs (roughly 4000 in A. mississippiensis and 9000 in C. niloticus ) was innervated by networks of afferents supplying multiple...

...Frank E. Fish; Sandra A. Bostic; Anthony J. Nicastro; John T. Beneski SUMMARY Crocodilians, including the alligator ( Alligator mississippiensis ), perform a spinning maneuver to subdue and dismember prey. The spinning maneuver, which is referred to as the `death roll',involves rapid rotation about...

...David R. Jones; Graham Shelton ABSTRACT Blood pressures have been recorded in the heart along with pressures and flow in the aortic arches of anaesthetized and awake alligators. Systemic blood pressures were significantly lower [5.22±0.57kPa ( N =3) versus 9.85±0.46kPa ( N =5)] and cardiac outputs...

...G. Shelton; D. R. Jones ABSTRACT Pressure recordings from the heart and major arteries of the alligator show that a conventional relationship exists between the left ventricle and the right aorta. Pressure gradients from ventricle to aorta during systole are very small. Right aortic blood flow...
