Drinker was a small, plant-eating dinosaur that probably scurried through the
forests and swampy shores of lakes. This small dinosaur had large feet to help
it move quickly and quietly. It was discovered by Dr. Robert Bakker, and he
named if for Edward Drinker Cope, who was a famous dinosaur paleontologist in
the late 1800s.
Drinker had a fairly primitive
design. It was probably a fairly common
dinosaur in its time and may be a basal
dinosaur for the hypsilophondontids . It
is known from three partial skeletons.
