Re: Those amazing walking bats

I've not seen video of the New Zealand bats walking, so can't address the issue of similarity, but most pterosaurs would have been capable of an effective quadrupedal walking gait that wouldn't typically require 'scuttling' or a low body position.

Could pterosaurs have used a similar gait while on the ground?
