I need to know the masses, dimensions, and moments of inertia for the
body segments of a number of animals. In particular, I'd like to find
this information for a cheetah, a horse, and a monkey. I plan to use
this information for computer animations so I'm not too picky about the
exact animal. For example, any fast quadruped with a flexible back
would do in place of the cheetah.

Is there a single source with this information for many animals? Or
can anyone point me to papers with this information for these particular
animals?

Thanks for your help.
