Latest Edmontosaurus Stories
In the struggle to survive against big meat-eating dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus rex, some smaller dinosaurs evolved the ability to sprint, while others developed long-distance running abilities.
The month of September has already brought us several new amazing dinosaur species, including the massive Dreadnoughtus and the first-ever semi-aquatic species known as the Spinosaurus, but the latest fossil find edges out both of those discoveries by a nose.
Researchers from Australia's University of New England (UNE) and Italy’s University of Bologna have reportedly discovered the first evidence that dinosaurs had fleshy head ornaments similar to a rooster’s comb.
Researchers from the University of Cape-Town, the Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, and Temple University have discovered that duck-billed dinosaurs endured long, dark polar winters.
Tyrannosaurus rex was an opportunistic feeder, not a top predator, paleontologists say.
A new study suggests that a hadrosaur's jaw wasn't hinged in the same way as modern people and animals, answering a question that researchers have long wondered about how these ancient animals handled food.
University of Manchester scientists are using laser imaging to investigate how fat â€“ or fit â€“ T. rex and his fellow dinosaurs were.
Contrary to popular belief, polar dinosaurs may not have traveled nearly as far as originally thought when making their bi-annual migration.
Researchers at North Dakotaâ€™s state museum are scrupulously chipping away at a giant greenish-black 65-million-year-old rock, using tiny brushes and chisels to uncover a nearly complete dinosaur fossil, with skin and all.
Edmontosaurus is a genus of a crestless hadrosaurid, meaning duck-billed, dinosaur. It includes two species: Edmontosaurus regalis and Edmontosaurus annectens. Fossils of E. regalis have been recovered in rocks of western North America that date from the late Campanian stage of the Cretaceous Period 73 million years ago, while those of E. annectens were recovered in the same geographic region but in rocks that dated to the end of the Maastrichtian stage of the Cretaceous, 65.5 million years...
Claosaurus, meaning "˜broken lizard', is a genus of hadrosaurid dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period (Santonian age). It got its name due to the odd display of its fossils in the bone bed, which appeared to be broken. It was first discovered near the Smokey Hill River in Kansas, USA in 1872. It was originally named Hadrosaurus agilis in 1872, but was changed to Claosaurus agilis in 1890 when major differences between the specimen and Hadrosaurus were discovered. A second species was...
Brachylophosaurus or "short-crested lizard" is a genus of dinosaur that was found in the Oldman Formation of Alberta, Canada in 1936. It was first described by Charles M. Sternberg in 1953. It remained the only described specimen until 1988, when Jack Horner described the specimen B. goodwini that was discovered in the Judith River Formation in Montana. A find by Nate Murphy in 1994 was a complete and uncrushed skeleton which he nicknamed "Elvis", and then he discovered another specimen in...
Anatotitan or "large duck" is a genus of flat-headed dinosaur commonly referred to as a "duck-billed dinosaur". It lived during the end of the Cretaceous Period, in what is now North America. Its remains have been preserved in the Hell Creek and Lance Formations dated 68 to 65 mya. They were among the last dinosaurs that existed on the planet before the extinction of all dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Like many dinosaurs, the history of Anatotitan is somewhat confusing. The original...
