Tripedal to the Metal
That’s some loco motion, huh? Found this neat little GIF showing how an ant’s legs move at a full gallop. While calmly strolling though the picnic grounds, ants have five of their six legs at a time in contact with the ground. But when it’s time to put the (tiny) pedal to the metal, they change their gait to this alternating tripod motion.
This pattern isn’t controlled by the insect’s brain, but rather by bundles of neurons in the leg called central pattern generators. While moving at such a clip, it just so happens that three legs is the minimum number it needs on the ground at a time to balance its rigid exoskeleton without toppling over.
Is that part of the reason that insects have six legs and not another number like four or eight? Or did the gait evolve to match the hardware? My guess is the latter, but I am not sure. What say you, insect folks?

It’s Hotel Kakslauttanen! This is their glass igloo village where you can watch the beautiful and vivid northern lights from your bed. How wild would that be?! There is so much do and experience here. If you are brave enough you can take it one step further than the glass igloo, and sleep in real snow-built igloos! Of course, they have cabins too (that are absolutely amazing and drool worthy). I would love to go someday!
