Re: [Re: [Re: JP3 Trailer]]


Actually, the position of articulated skeletons in situ indicate the quadruped
stance of  big hadrosaurs and iguanodonts. Smaller genera and the young
animals might have been true and/or occasional bipeds. Some of the ichno data
is consistent with this assumption.

As I understand it, Joe Johnston said the animals were _Corythosaurus_ and 
I haven't yet heard the argument that you mention about only smaller 
hadrosaurs being bipedal.  What does it entail?  (I'm guessing the argument 
behind the bipedal mega-hadrosaurs is that the animals were running, and 
therefore assumed a bipedal stance.)
