Mystery dinosaur tracks - did sauropods really walk on two legs ?

Maybe one sauropod was busy mounting another one, and so left only tracks of its hindfeet??

That should have left tail tracks too.

I thought we already knew that they stood up to get high leaves. At least they are always depicted doing this. Maybe they did it without putting thier tail on the ground. Probably used it for balance.

Quote from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinosaurs_in_Jurassic_Park :

"The film inaccurately depicts the species as having the ability to stand on its hind legs, allowing it to reach high tree branches."

Is it so inaccurate when pairs of sauropod footprints have been found? Didn't they say that the prints were somehow determined to be front feet? Maybe they did handstands. To reach farther with thier tail or something weird.

I like the thought of that. Giagantic sauropods doing handstands.

Go on you two - laugh about it.  But constipation is a serious matter for us larger folk, and it must have been absolute agony for bronty-sore-ar$e. 

It's all the fault of trees, but in today's crazy woke world 'trees are good' and we're not allowed to criticise them.  The fat dinosaurs were perfectly happy eating bran and ferns and other stuff that kept them regular, then these new-fangled trees evolved and displaced all the nice soft plants.  Have you ever tried eating wood? 

So the dinosaurs had to switch diet but it didn't agree with them and they got all blocked up.  What happens when dinos can't poop?  They bloat up with methane gas.  Methane is lighter than air so their tail-ends started to float.  It was perhaps quite fun at first, but as they swelled ever bigger it became a frantic struggle to stay attached to the ground.  In fact that's probably how they evolved into birds and dragons.
