This bizarre suite of teeth has led to debate over what heterodontosaurs ate. Some scientists think heterodontosaurs were omnivores who used their differently-shaped teeth to eat both plants and small animals.[2]

Though it is mostly bi-pedal it was semi-quadrupedal if it needed it's front legs. It was 18 inches high and 40 inches long. It was a very light weighted dinosaur weighing in at only ten pounds.
