for being a dinosaur was having a hole in the hip.

Is that correct ?
I'm not sure off hand. I think the info Farmerman provided should answer your question.

My main point to Bewildered was that many things people generically call "Dinosaurs" were technically reptiles. For example, Pterosaurs were "flying reptiles", not Dinosaurs. Yet many people refer to them as Dinosaurs.

And even among the other "Dinosaurs", there were Theropods and Sauropods and probably a lot of other flavors as well. I think the original term just meant something like Terrible or Wondrous Lizard.

Yes; I am satisfied with his answer.
We r fortunate to have someone with the farmer's expertise to inform us.

Yea, the pipe piper farmer who still tells you dinosaurs were reptiles and turned into birds suddenly 65 million years ago. Farmer should learn the great shrinking skill from the huge dinosaurs.
