Elephants are gaited but what gait?
I read this article debating whether elephants run or walk or both, and I kept thinking "Someone needs to introduce these guys to horsemen, we can see that elephants gait!" Granted, in biomechanical discussions of potential and kinetic energy it may be worth sticking to run vs walk mechanics. But in general terms, I look at an elephant at speed and think "gaited". Stride with joint markers
My question is, what gait is this? A runwalk? Or something else? The elephants do get a bit of a head bob going at speed.
