Data from: Shape variability in tridactyl dinosaur footprints: the significance of size and function

Jens N. Lallensack, Thomas Engler & H. Jonas Barthel
The functional anatomy of the hindlimb of bipedal dinosaurs has been intensively studied. Yet, surprisingly little work has been done concerning functional adaptations in the digits for terrestrial locomotion. While complete and articulated pes skeletons are scarce, pes shape is abundantly recorded by fossil footprints. Here we aim to elucidate the significance of footprint shape and size for locomotion using a large sample (n = 303) of tridactyl dinosaur footprints from a broad range of...
