    DescriptionNew 3D simulations of dinosaur movement suggest that some of the animals may have swung their tails to and fro to help them move, similar to how we humans swing our arms. Looking at the simulated movements of one Triassic theropod, Coelophysis bauri, an interdisciplinary team of researchers suggest that movements of the tail from side to side could have helped some dinosaurs regulate their angular momentum and reduced strain on muscles.
