Figure 10: Relative lengths of the upper and lower leg segments are used as measures of running potentials. Left: The horse's lower leg segment to upper leg segment ratio is 2.5:1. This suggests that the horse is a fast runner. Centre: The elephant's leg ratio is 0.7:1 which is indicative of a slow runner. Right: The ratio for the Lambeosaurus is 1.5:1 which suggests the ability of running fast.
