RE: "Heel to Toe"


        Dinosaurs have what is called a 'digitigrade' stance.  This means that 
stand (and walk) on their toes.  So the answer to your question: "No, they
did not walk like humans do."

A question came up in my Invertebrate Paleo class today that we did not
know the answer to.  I was wondering if anyone out there knew.  The
question is "Did dinosaurs walk from heel to toe like humans do?"
Thank you in advance.
