Abstract

Ophiuroids are a suitable model for understanding the mechanism of resilient animal locomotion, because they can move by self-organizing their arm movements even when the arms are arbitrarily cut off. We observed the locomotion of an ophiuroid that has only one arm, and found that it can move by exploiting subtle terrain irregularities. We modeled this behavior using a simple local reflexive mechanism.
