Flea - Animation Time!

Today's Animation Time features the Flea Rig.
Head - light bounce, extra flick in the antennae
Thorax - twists and tilts to allow for the next forward movement
Abdomen - bounces and dips overlapping the movement of the thorax
Front Legs - lead the movement with low medium steps
Back Legs - wider gait, drag back on the passing position
Middle Legs - push forward and pull back with a little drag on the passing position
