Re: Superb photo!

You should see them run! The lift their tail and though they run on four legs it appears as if they would only run on their hind ones. Like little dinosaurs.

And they jump like experts - using all four legs to translate themselves to the next rock. Pretty big as well - 60cm / 2 ft including the tail.
