The Hippoposaurus by Julio-Lacerda The Hippoposaurus by Julio-Lacerda
Lurdusaurus, the semi-aquatic african iguanodontian, perhaps very similar in habits to modern-day hippopotamus.

It hasn't been very widely illustrated, AFAIK. So here's my contribution :)

Based on the - I think - only skeletal reconstruction of this animal avaiable, by Pete Buchholz.

I love the way you illustrated the play of light across the sandy bottom and the slight clouds of silt kicked up by the creature's footsteps.

It looks more like a o sauropod to me.

it looks it has short hindlegs, was it more "quadrupedal" than other iguanodontids?

I guess so, it probably relied more on a quadrupedal stance to support it's weight, and I bet it wasn't a very good runner.
