dc.description.abstractGait repertoires of the northern brown bandicoot, Isoodon macrourus, were studied over a wide range of locomotor speeds. At low relative speeds, bandicoots used symmetrical gaits that included pacing, trotting, and lateral sequence strides. Forefoot contact duration was generally shorter than hind foot contact duration at all speeds. At moderate relative speeds bandicoots used half-bounding gaits with either no period of suspension or with a short gathered suspension. At high speeds the predominant gait had both a short extended and a short gathered suspension, although some strides comprised only an extended suspension. Increases in speed were accompanied by increases in spinal extension, presumably leading to the extended suspensions. On a stationary treadmill individuals occasionally used a bipedal gait. Maximum half-bounding speeds appear to be relatively low in this species.
