Forerunner

Although Massospondylus is the forerunner of huge sauropods such Brachiosaurus, there are differences. Size is the most obvious, plus the ability of Massospondylus to walk on two legs. This two-leggedness may be linked to the fact the dinosaur can grip things with its front feet and has a large thumb claw on each foot, probably used in self-defence.
