For those of you for whom this is new, this means that most ornithischians
had cheeks (except a few basal forms). This includes: stegosaurs, ankylosaurs,
hpysilophodonts, iguanodonts, hadrosaurs, ceratopsians, pachycephalosaurs,
and so on.
[BTW, with cheeks hadrosaurs most definately do NOT look "duck-billed"].

Yech! Drooping tails have long since been thrown out by serious students
The peace of God be with you.
