Locomotion is movement of the entire organism or body of the species (animal or human being) from one location to another.  There is a translatory motion of all parts of the body.

Locomotion needs energy.  Locomotion of flying birds in a streamlined way does not need energy as they simply glide and float.  They do not wave flaps.

Locomotion is usually self propelling. that is , it is initiated by self.
