LAMBEOSAURUS
"Lambe's Lizard"


ANATOMY
Lambeosaurus Lambeosaurus was a crested, duck-billed dinosaur. Its forward-leaning, hollow, bony crest was as big or bigger than the rest of its skull and may have been used to produce sounds, enhance its sense of smell, and/or used in courtship displays. Lambeosaurus' nostrils went up through the crest. Its snout was narrow and ended in a beak that was wide and blunt. Males may have had larger crests than females. Lambeosaurus had pebbly-textured skin and may have had webbed fingers. Its sight and hearing were keen, but it had no natural defenses.

Lambeosaurus grew to be about 30-50 feet long (9-15 m), weighing 5.6 tons. It is the largest-known duck-bill dinosaur.

LAMBEOSAURUS BEHAVIOR
Lambeosaurus was a herding animal that may have migrated from shorelines to higher ground to reproduce.

DIET
Lambeosaurus was an herbivore, eating pine needles, the leaves of flowering trees, and twigs.

INTELLIGENCE
Lambeosaurus was an ornithopod, whose intelligence (as measured by its relative brain to body weight, or EQ) was midway among the dinosaurs.

DISCOVERY OF FOSSILS
Lambeosaurus Lambeosaurus was named by Dr. William A. Parks in 1923 to honor Lawrence Lambe, an early Canadian fossil hunter. Many fossils have been found in North America, including Montana (USA), Baja California (Mexico), and Alberta (Canada). It was the first duck-billed dinosaur found in North America. Fossilized skin and hand-prints have been found.
