Have you ever seen a young croc running? They bound like rabbits rather
than the waddling run of adults. Perhaps the orientation of crocodilian
limbs has more to do with streamlining their bodies for an aquatic
lifestyle than the fact that "cold-bloods" lack the energy to power
limbs directly beneath them.
