Well, there's a reproduction of Colbert's (1981) Scutellosaurus
reconstruction (skeletal -- bipedal) in THE DINOSAURIA (Weishampel, Dodson,
and Osmolska 1990, p. 430). David Norman's book THE ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA
OF DINOSAURS (1985) has a life restoration (quadrepedal) on pp. 98-99, and
there's another (bipedal) in THE MACMILLAN ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA OF
DINOSAURS AND PREHISTORIC ANIMALS (Dixon, Cox, Savage, and Gardiner 1988) on
p. 134. I can't attest to the accuracy of any of these, since early
ornithischians aren't my thing.
Is Echinodon known from anything more than a few jaw fragments and teeth?
