A bird foot of a Syrrhaptes Sandgrouse. Wikipedia says: “The small feet lack a hind toe, and the three front toes are fused together. The upper surface is feathered, and the underneath has a fleshy pad.”

A fearsome adversary.
The post warrior.
Here’s a lovely video of a sugar glider.
📌Has a membrane (patagium) that extends from its forelegs to its hind legs
📌When glider jumps, it extends its legs (to flatten and stretch its patagium) to create an airfoil
📌By moving its tail and legs the glider can change direction pic.twitter.com/wN3nHilKDt
