What’s in your freezer? Probably the usual collection of frozen vegetables and joints of meat. But the contents of John Hutchinson’s freezer are rather different. In fact, he has several freezers, all of whom contain far more exotic produce than yours:
“My freezers currently hold a lot of crocodiles, elephants and giraffe legs, a monitor lizard, an otter, many random bits of exotic animals, and quite a few domestic animals like horses and chickens,” says Hutchinson, a Professor of Evolutionary Biomechanics at the Structure and Motion Lab of the Royal Veterinary College, Hertfordshire, England.
Hutchinson specialises in the evolution of animal motion: “For example,” he says, “I study how the two-legged gaits of birds evolved from the four-legged movement of early reptiles, via dinosaurs.”
