Ostriches provide clues to Dinosaur movement

An analysis of ostrich movement may help palaeontologists better understand locomotor techniques in bipedal dinosaurs. Scientists have tended to disregard the use of wings in studies of ostrich locomotion, believing they were mainly for display and temperature-control purposes. New, long-term observations of hand-raised ostriches, model calculations and air-stream experiments have
