Help me for Biomimicry!

Post by massiG82 » Fri Dec 03, 2010 2:18 pm

Hello!
After several searches on the web I decided to write to you to find out if there is any animal that takes advantage of a rotary motion to move (all directions).
In a few words: to get certain features, such as animals use a circular motion?. I realize that this question is a little superficial but I trust in your knowledge!...and sorry for my bad english :(
thank you in advance, best regards!

There are spiders that roll down sand dunes, and a couple of other similar locomotions - is that what you mean?

Hedgehogs?

I would surmise that some of the sea urchins etc do, as their spines seem to be radial all over, so potentially could go in any direction, including over their mouths??
