Relevance of Mammalian Stance to Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy

    A mammal's stance affects many aspects of their lives and is, therefore, a very good way to compare mammals.   By comparing two different species stances, it would be possible to predict which animal would be faster or stronger.  Stance can tell how well an animal can grasp things, balance on two feet, or leap great distances.  It is a structural difference that benefits the animal in its particular lifestyle and way of survival.  This makes in an important part of comparative vertebrae anatomy.
