Lizard hurdles - Honours project

So i have been working on lizards running on two or four legs for some time now, Check this out.

I think it tends to be related to the ability of lizards to raise their body centre of mass to get over obstacles. Are bipedal lizards better able to do this? I have collected a stack of data on this, but it needs to be analysed, and maybe to collect more data where parts are missing.

The eventual goal is to combine this with data from robots running on two and four legs over obstacles. These robots are currently being constructed by the engineering honours students here at USC.

So get on board if lizards are your thing.
