IntroOrnithosuchus (OR-nith-oh-SOOK-us) was an Archosaur, but it itself wasn't a dinosaur, although it resembled one well; the back legs were held vertically beneath it's body and could probably move upright on two legs. However, the structure of its ankle joints were different from that of a true dinosaur. It lived during the Late Triassic era.
