Drinker was a small, plant-eating dinosaur that probably scurried through the forests and swampy shores of lakes. This small dinosaur had large feet to help it move quickly and quietly. It was discovered by Dr. Robert Bakker, and he named if for Edward Drinker Cope, who was a famous dinosaur paleontologist in the late 1800s.

Drinker had a fairly primitive design. It was probably a fairly common dinosaur in its time and may be a basal dinosaur for the hypsilophondontids . It is known from three partial skeletons.
