As far as I am aware, no one (except you) has claimed
that australopithicenes "waddled".
They probably had a considerably different stride style
than anatomically modern humans do, but I know of no
studies that concluded that australopithicines "waddled".
I would like a full science journal citation for your
claim (that is, if you don't mind).
