...STEPHEN M. SECOR; BRUCE C. JAYNE; ALBERT F. BENNETT We measured the performance (burst speed and endurance) and the energetic cost of sidewinding locomotion for the viperid snake Crotalus cerastes . The linear scaling regressions relating log mass to log burst speed and log endurance have slopes...
