I have to say this is kinda wrong. Animals really don't walk like this, so to me it looks very awkward. Take a look at an Mlp walk cycle, thats normally how animals walk in the real world. Then look at this. Notice Ahuizotls' paws don't meet. This might be an animation by you or the animators of Mlp, (if you referenced the walk cycle) 
And if you did reference this, my apologies. Its the show's animators for making Ahuizotl walk stiff and awkward like this. 
And if you wish, you can completely ignore this comment. I would understand. Have a wonderful day :3
(I'm sorry for terrible wording, I can't explain things well :U)

I actually did use a reference. Not from the show, but a walking cat.
I think I get what you mean though. It does look a bit stiff, but I never claimed I was an expert on animating animals. Maybe I'll revisit it once I get better at this, but for now, it's good enough for me.

Alright, I understand. I'm not an expert on animating animals..or animating in general. And the animation itself is amazing, and since you made it from scratch, its even better ;D

Well, I have a basic tutorial in my FAQ, but for this specific sprite, I decided that he would move like a cat, so I looked up how a cat moves. Then I made the body, drew the legs on individual layers and then animated it as usual. It's no big secret, really. :)

Thanks, but I doubt that I'll make a base for this.
