...Adrien A. Arias; Emanuel Azizi ABSTRACT Graded substrates require legged animals to modulate their limb mechanics to meet locomotor demands. Previous work has elucidated strategies used by cursorial animals with upright limb posture, but it remains unclear how sprawling species such as alligators...

... as a limited number of direct observations of limb posture during locomotion. If size alone is the causal basis for different limb posture, then the erectness of limbs should increase significantly with increased size within a phylogenetically narrow lineage, but such data are sparse. Thus, to better establish...

... kinematic variables than incline, but many kinematic variables changed little with increases in diameter beyond 6 cm. As surface diameter increased, the limb posture of A. sagrei became progressively more sprawled. Significantly greater knee flexion during stance was important for locating the foot more...
