The things you don't learn on this net! From curvature in space to
physically challenged dogs relieving themselves. Is there no end? ;-) Makes
one wonder if male dogs are right-legged, left-legged, or ambidextrous (or
whatever term is applicable when dealing with legs). On second thought, nah,
some things are better left unknown.
The apparent symmetry of mammals has made me think about symmetry in other
living things. Starfish have five arms, if I'm not mistaken and flowers
show a variety of symmetry. Any biologists among you that can shed some
light on this?

A dog does not need 4 legs. A male dog here has one back leg and it can
successfully cock its leg . It uses the good one for cocking and has to
stand on its 2 front legs with its rear in the air and the one rear leg in
position as a dog's leg ought to be. And then it happily has a pee.
PS how do kangaroo's mate?
