freshwater crocodile high walkingAustralian freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni) performing the "high walk" style of locomotion. This particular gait (walking style) is unique to the crocodilians: the entire body except the latter half of the tail is lifted off the ground, the limbs are positioned directly underneath the body, and the feet point forwards. As each limb pushes backwards (to move the body forward) it remains directly underneath the body. Only when the limb moves forward to return to its original position for the next stride does it swing out sideways. Front right and rear left, then front left and rear right limbs move synchronously.
