This method applies ONLY on quadrupedal dinosaurs (thyreophorans, ornithopods, ceratopsians, sauropods), so it doesnt apply on theropods, prosauropods or any other non-quadrupedal dinosaur
And now this JUST MY HYPOTHESIS, i elaborated it by comparin numbers and a cladogram i've in my laptop
2 find da new weight of
1)quadrupedal ornithischians, u must multiply da old weight by 0,78
4 example
styracosaurus old weight: 4,2 t
styracosaurus new weight: 4,2 x 0,78 = 3,3 t
2)non-macronarian sauropods (anchisaurids, melanorosaurids, vulcanodontids, mamenchisaurids, turiasaurs, haplocanthosaurids, diplodocoids), u must multiply da old weight by 0,73
4 example
diplodocus sp. old weight: 5,5 t
diplodocus sp. new weight: 5,5 x 0,73 = 4 t
2)non-somphospondyl macronarians (brachiosaurids, camarasaurids, huanghetitanids), u must multiply da old weight by 0,5
4 example
giraffatitan brancai immature specimen old weight: 32 t
giraffatitan brancai immature speciman new weight: 16 t
-somphospondyls (euhelopodids and titanosaurs), u must multiply da old weight by 0,54
4 example
opisthocoelicaudia old weight: 24 t
oposthocoelicaudia new weight: 24 t x 0,54 = 13 t
