Griffins, as winged quadrupeds, have a rather implausible anatomy at first glance. However, they also have many traits that seem to allow for a distinct anatomy
Specifically, this anatomy would involve an extra pair of shoulders near the posterior end of the ribcage. These shoulders would support complete avian hindlegs, which would serve as the griffin's forelegs
This anatomy may have issues. For example, all four legs attach at more-or-less the rear half of the body, which seems bad for the griffin's balance during take-off or landing
Could this unique anatomy work for the griffin?
