A short video of RanaBug at dinnertime. Many people had concerns about how well she would be able to get around, and as you can see, she does really well. Sometimes she steps with her front leg forward and bends at the ankle to compensate for her elbow, while other times she swings the entire leg out. Either way, she can not only keep a ‘normal’ pace, but she has a zooming speed as well. The more muscle she builds, the easier it will be for her to move.
People also often ask about the ear flaps, and they can mean many things. Along with taking the entire scenario into consideration, speed and intensity are a general giveaway. This video shows her ears at what we refer to as ‘windshield wiper speed.’ The lack of intensity and repetitiveness of this speed is her general ear flap used for cooling and bugs. Being that it was a mild day, it’s most likely a bug flap.
As always, her flaps differ from Maia and Guida and are interpreted accordingly.
