Some animals can run incredibly fast in short bursts while others run slower for longer distances. Explore what affects how animals run! Try This:
  • Keep stride length and frequency the same and change only the muscle type. How does endurance change?
  • Keep muscle type the same, and change only the stride length or frequency. How does the top speed change?

Done playing with the sliders and exploring the possibilities? Choose an animal from the drop-down menu and try to find its specific parameters by tuning the sliders. For every two animals you find, you will raise your salary by one clam! Visit your Training Log to check on your progress.
