For the record, I acknowledge that the wrist contacts the ground, so the forelimbs are unambiguously plantigrade. To my eyes, though, the hindlimbs are digitigrade.

Another #introduction post for all the new Twitter people (and just new people in general!). A little about me: I’m Sabrina - I’m a #writer (some #scicomm) and #author of #ScienceFiction (and #ClimateFiction and #dystopian) #books - my series Aestus was on the Amazon hard #scifi bestseller list recently. 😊 I also do #archery and #photography and enjoy #hiking - I would love to get into #astrophotography. I am learning #German and really enjoy good convos/coffee/tea. Sry for so many hashtags 😅

8 wheels = 96 "legs" to bring to #SICB2023 Keep your eyes out for the passive dynamic walkers on Thursday 👀
So I understand that the bird site has started blocking links to common/known Mastodon instances, and that doesn't seem like free speech to me. So... I did a thing.

That means you can share that link that will redirect to your Mastodon account without the pouty baby stopping you. If you find this helpful can you boost so others can find it? #TwitterMigration #Mastodon #Musk #introduction
