Summary:"Gravity is a force that all living organisms have to deal with. The body structure of animals is a system of balanced beams and masses. In order to stand or walk, animals like dinosaurs must balance on their feet. To do this, they must keep their center of gravity """"""""between"""""""" their feet. The center of gravity is the balance point of a body. When you balance a ruler on your finger, the center of gravity is right under your finger."
