Vulcanodon, like other sauropods, probably hatched from eggs. It is thought that sauropods did not take care of their eggs .
This big, heavy reptile was an herbivore (it ate only plants, like ferns and tree leaves). It must have eaten a tremendous amount of plant material each day to sustain itself. Vulcanodon must have spent most of its time grazing. It swallowed leaves and other vegetation whole, without chewing them. Its food probably included conifers (which were the dominant plant when the large sauropods lived), gingkos, seed ferns, cycads, bennettitaleans, ferns, club mosses, and horsetails.
