#AskAdrian Series


Animal Dynamics design super-efficient systems inspired by the deep study of evolutionary biomechanics.

With our deep roots in biology and nature, we decided to ask our co-founder and Professor of Biomechanics Adrian Thomas a series of weird and wonderful questions, from which animal can go the longest without eating to why octopuses haven’t taken over the world.

Find the full series below.
