** ''Deinosuchus'' does the same thing with hadrosaurs.



* ''Gastornis'' is always chasing and eating small horse-like ungulates, usually ''Hyracotherium''. ScienceMarchesOn, since ''Gastornis'' now turned out to be a herbivore.

* Opossums are always hanging upside down (and are [[SmallTaxonomyPools always Virginia opossums]]). This one is actually not true in RealLife: while opossums, especially young ones, can support their weight using only their tails for a short amount of time, they can't do this for the extended periods of time they're often shown in (and certainly don't sleep in this position).
** They also play dead a lot.

* ''Baryonyx'' is always fishing or eating fish. This behavior gets passed down to ''Spinosaurus''''Spinosaurus'' (when it's portrayed accurately, that is).



* ''Iguanodon'' pretty much does the same things as hadrosaurs do, though it's more likely to fight predators as opposed to fleeing. It was often shown squaring off with ''Megalosaurus'' in older works. No longer prevalent in recent times (probably because [[AnachronismStew these two did not live at the same time]]).

** The actual fish eating pterosaurs ''Pteranodon'' and ''Rhamphorynchus'' will often be seen either snatching fish from the water's surface (''Pteranodon'') or skimming across the water with their beaks (''Rhamphorynchus''). Neither of these ideas are correct[[note]]''Pteranodon'' is believed to have actually dived ''into'' the water to catch fish rather than fly over it (the latter behavior was actually more likely for ''Rhamphorhynchus'') and studies have proven that skim feeding would have been physically impossible for any known pterosaur[[/note]]. Azhdarchid pterosaurs were often depicted as scavengers, usually [[CirclingVultures circling over herds of migrating dinosaurs]] waiting for one of them to keel over from exhaustion so they can eat the remains. Thanks to recent research and art done by pterosaur researcher Mark Witton, however, azhdarchid pterosaurs these days are always shown stalking on the ground eating baby sauropods. [[ScienceMarchesOn Though rare today,]] occasionally you might even see one exibit ''bat-like'' behavior such as hanging upside down in a tree or cliff.

* ''Maiasaura'' is always shown taking care of its young.

to:

* Hadrosaurs are always grazing and eating from trees until they get threatened by a theropod. In older works they would stand around in bodies of water, often fleeing into them to escape from predators.

** ''Parasaurolophus'' and other crested hadrosaurs would often use their crests as snorkels. [[ScienceMarchesOn Nowadays]], they are always using them for vocalization.



* Sauropods used to always be depicted standing around in swamps. Far less prevalent now that [[ScienceMarchesOn science has marched on]]. Nowadays, they're usually seen eating leaves from trees and migrating in herds.
