Hey Kacey
Today we are looking at a hadrosaur, more commonly known as a duck billed dinosaur. This is an immature animal, not nearly fully grown, but you can see some neat things on it. First of all, the head defines it as corythosaurus, with that rather smallish crest. You can clearly see the duck bill on the front of its face. This guy had cheeks, and about 140 teeth in the back of its mouth, so it's likely that it chewed its food. If you look at its hands, there are 5 fingers there, and there are huge tendons on its vertebral column to help support the tail. Does this description sound familiar? It should, we saw the same 5 fingered hand, beak, and vertebral tendons on that little dryosaurus that we met a couple of weeks ago. This is one of its descendants. The dryosaur gave rise to all the iguanodonts and all the hadrosaurs, so it was a very successful dino line until the end of the Cretaceous. Oh, I nearly forgot! That crest is a giant nasal cavity with twists and turns in it. That denotes that this guy/girl could make a huge noise. That is important because they grazed in a herd, and the lookout/s for the group could use noise to let them know when T Rex was coming towards them. For those who ask, this one was found in the Judith River formation. Thanks for your daily support in a very busy month for all. Here's a big hug and vote for you today. Gizmo
