There are a few animals that are basically motionless for part or even most of their lives (like barnacles) but the average animal is one that moves. Dinosaurs obviously did so, but things inevitably get complicated quickly when trying to work out exactly how well they could run, jump and climb, how fast they were and what they could and couldn’t do to get around. This time out we tackle these issues and the information we have to work from, especially footprints. We are then joined by Dr Esther Odekunle who has a very pertinent question about dinosaurs in water.
