Poposaurus gracilis sauntering along by ScottHartman Poposaurus gracilis sauntering along by ScottHartman
The eponymous poposaurid (a group of croc-line archosaurs), it sorta parallelled theropods in becoming bipedal, but was also quite different from theropods in other ways.

It walks over their full feet, just alike bears do. It's a plantigrade!

It may have been something of a convertible - walking plantigrade at lower speeds and adjusting to a more digitigrade stance when it was in a hurry.

Oh! Ok. It sounds plausible since the feet have such sape.

It's named after the Popo Agie Formation in which it was found. The name of the formation is derived from a Crow River Native American phrase describing a prominent river nearby.

Those are some big feet. I judging by the short robust legs I doubt this thing was very fast

I love that it looks like the lovechild of a Komodo dragon and larger early theropods, despite not being very closely related to either

Nope, it's named for the Popo Agie river, which is where the type specimen was discovered.

Finally a skeletal that it's not from David Peters :/

The animal really looks lie it's been compressed, probably because of it's plantigrade feet.

GetAwayTrike also has one.
Granted, it does look somewhat different. It looks like Scott has accounted much more for crushing.

That's weird. What's the function of that ankle? And the puny hands?
Reply
:iconscotthartman:
ScottHartman Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
The ankle is pretty normal for croc-line archosaurs (it increases leverage, sort of like the mammalian calcaneum). The small hands presumably aren't doing much - maybe helping it lie down and get back up? But mostly they're just getting out of the way since it's started walking on its hind limbs alone.

And had its skin osteoderms like real crocs?
Reply
:iconscotthartman:
ScottHartman Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
To my knowledge there weren't any osteoderms found with Poposaurus, though there are in most croc-line archosaurs (including crocs!).

Then, if one day I make a life reconstruction I think I'll be inclined to put osteoderms.

I was convinced Poposaurus was the huge rauisuchid, and it turns out I was actually thinking of Teratosaurus.... huh

on the other hand this thing has a very interesting body and skull, I wish realized it was a more interesting creature than "big postosuchus" :p
