"Here's Mud in Your Eye!"
The great weight of these animals is carried on column-like limbs. Their lower leg bones are not fused, which allow for considerable rotation. They walk on their toes (digitigrade) which are supported and cushioned by a pad of elastic tissue. The tissue expands the soles of the feet when the foot is lifted and contracts into a soft pad when weight is placed on it.
