The majority of walking animals are quadrupeds, including mammals such as cattle and cats, and reptiles, like lizards.
There are some exceptions, for example among the insects the praying mantis is a quadruped.
The distinction between quadrupeds and tetrapods is important in evolutionary biology, particularly in the context of bipeds, winged animals, and animals whose limbs have adapted to other roles (e.g.

 quadruped - What is definition of the term - quadruped ?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
quadruped -- (an animal especially a mammal having four limbs specialized for walking)
While the argument may be made that "every limb, including an arm or wing, is just a modified leg", such a sense of "quadruped" is better described as a tetrapod, evoking the taxonomic unit tetrapoda the vertabrates with quadruped ancestors, including mammals, some reptiles, amphibians, and birds.
The distinction is particularly important in the context of bipeds having two legs, adapted in gross anatomy and neurology a bipedal gait, and of quadrupeds having, in their arm- and wing-homologous forelimbs, markedly different characteristics that a leg must have, whether adapted to a role in a bipedal or quadrupedal gait.
