.. just a comment about plantigrades... :roll:

..according Wiki...

In mammals, plantigrade locomotion means walking with the podials and metatarsals flat on the ground.

Humans are an example of a plantigrade species; in humans, the podials and metatarsals constitute the sole of the foot. Other plantigrade species include raccoons, opossums, bears, rabbits, weasels, mice, pandas, rats, skunks and hedgehogs.

Hi all

Could it be something to do with picking up sound, because I know the humans and reptiles pick up sound in the form of vibrations
