Dinosaur unit Chapter 3: The ornithischian- plated dummies and walking tanks  Saurishchians (characterized by lizard hip bones, this group includes meat eaters like T. rex and the herbivorous long necked sauropod giants  Ornithischians (hips shaped like those of living birds- although they are not closely related to birds, the group includes the herbivories armored dinosaurs, the horned dinosaurs, the duck bills, the bizarre head ramming pachyceohalosaurs)  First ornithischians that appeared in the middle Triassic period were relatively small, bipedal animals  Dinosaurs went from being small to being giant  Ornithischians o Bird shaped hips o A beak to crop plants  Thyreophora = shield bearers- the armored dinosaurs. Features of this is their armor on their skin and their bones in the skin are referred to as osteoderms and they are very similar to bony bumps  Advanced thyreophora included two major groups: o the ankylosaurs (the dinosaur tanks, “fused lizard”): their distinguishing factor is extensive armor extending over the sides of the body and neck o stegosaurs (the plated lizards”) distinguishing factor is their plates and spikes along or beside the backbone  The most famous stegosaur is one of these advanced forms- stegaurus  It has been suggested that the plates of stegosaurs are for same species display (either sexual or agnostic interactions  Endocast: formed by sediments that infilled the brain cavity during the fossilization process and became solidified
