Re: I'm Walkin' here!!

I think that I described just such a motion as a 'rollicking roll' and a
'vertical bob'.
It makes me think that they didn't go that fast as the wasted energy for
side-to-side motion plus all that head weaving would be too exaggerated
at high speeds.  Perhaps it improved ankylosaur visibility.  Certainly
it would seem a lot noisier than necessary.

  I believe this would also give you a bit more vertical bob
