There is no real evidence of hopping dinosaur based on tracks, although in 1984 a group of French researchers interpreted a trackway as that of a hopping theropod dinosaur. It was named _Saltosauripus_, but this trackway was reevaluated by Thulborn as being turtle traces.

Mention of this in Lockley's "Tracking Dinosaurs"
