Quaesitosaurus, like all the large sauropods, has to consume a huge amount of food every day just to keep going. For a big dinosaur, it has only got a little mouth, so those jaws work hard every day, especially seeing as leaves are not always the most nutritious of foods. These dinosaurs spend most of their time eating.

Stomach stones

Many plant-eating dinosaurs - Quaesitosaurus included - carry gastroliths in their stomachs. These are stones that the dinosaur swallows to help grind up the food inside its stomach. Some birds, such as chickens, do this too.
