List of Quadrupedal Dinosaurs


The earliest dinosaurs known are bipedal and this may well be the original posture of the entire group. Quadrupedal dinosaurs appear a little later in the fossil record than the bipedal dinosaurs, but are equally interesting and considerably more varied. Almost all quadrupedal dinosaurs are herbivores. Most dinosaurs were obligate quadrupeds; well-known groups of dinosaurs that normally walked on all four legs include prosauropods, sauropods, ceratopsians, ankylosaurs, and stegosaurs. The front foot of a quadrupedal animal is called the manus, whereas the back foot is called the pes. Below you will find a list of dinosaurs that were classified as quadrupedal.
