Hate to disappoint you, but a Sauropod is NOT a Hadrosaur. Hadrosaurs are the kinds of Dinosaur that most refer to as 'duck-billed'. AKA, Parasaurolophus, Edmontosaurus, Corythosaurus, ect. Sauropods are the 'long necked' dinosaurs. Bracheosaurus, Diplodocus, Apatosaurus, ect. :) So, in other words, this is a slip up by Chriton.

A Hadrosaur is a Sauropod just like a tiger is a feline. It's just part of a bigger group called Sauropods. A Brachiosaurus is also a Sauropod.
