Falsusurculus by Hyrotrioskjan Falsusurculus by Hyrotrioskjan
Falsusurculus is a exception under cuspipods, this animal and its relatives are the only taxon which have legs at the exouterus. They are very well climbers and live on the highest branches. Another difference to the rest of the Cuspipoda is their lack of color vision. They are mostly nocturnal and in search for fresh buds they climb in (mostly) total darkness.

Its a nice design, but why is there only one segment to it's body-mass? I'd think they would be a bit to stiff to climb "trees", other then straight up and down.

That's how they are designed by nature, like tetrapods have only four limbs, mammels only seven neck vertebrates and insects which have always head, thorax and abdomen. 


p.s. they can also walk sideways...
