4th trochanter



I have another question!
 
Why is it that in some ornithopods the 4th trochanter
is long, slender and hook-shaped (e.g. in Dryosaurus)
and in others robust and stretched along the shaft
margin (e.g. in Hadrosaurs)? I know it must have
something to do with the musculus caudofemoralis, but
what???

Thank you,

Peter
