|Mammals have three stances based
upon how the bones in their feet touch the ground. These stances
are plantigrade, digitigrade, and unguligrade. They are
represented here by the squirrel, the cyote, and the deer. These
stances each have their own benefits and are each suited for different
tasks. Things that are affected by these stances include biomechanics, bone length ratios, and phalangeal formulas.
