Any animal that walks on four legs is called a quadruped. Quadrupedal dinosaurs include ceratopsians (like Triceratops), sauropods (like Brontosaurus [correctly called Apatosaurus], stegosaurs (dinosaurs with triangular "plates" on their back), ankylosaurs (armored herbivorous dinosaurs), and hadrosaurs (although they could also walk on two legs. An animal that walks on two legs is called a biped).

Any animal that walks on two legs is called bipedal. However, most dinosaurs that only walked on two legs belonged to the group known as theropods, whose species were usually meat eaters. Some small plant eating dinosaurs were also bipedal, but because they were not all directly related, they do not all fall under the same group name. A few dinosaurs (particularly hadrosaurs and iguanodonts) usually walked on four legs, but stood on two legs in order to scan for danger or to run.
