> What exactly constitutes a "natural" stance in tetrapods.

    According to Dr. Tom Holtz: "Speaking as a paleontologist, the
default form for vertebrates on Earth is that of a quadruped which has
a horizontal backbone and a long tail." (Walker, Alta,
"Extraterrestrial Unintelligence?", _Skeptical Inquirer_, Vol. 20,
No. 6, November/December 1996, pages 56 - 58.)
