“Interesting… an Edmontosaurus. This is a herbivore that can move on all four feet, or go upright and walk on its hind quarters. We should be able to control and monitor this species more easily than some of the others. Use that to your advantage as you plan out the park.”
Edmontosaurus was a large herbivorous dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period. Its name means “Edmonton lizard” after the location of its discovery (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada). It has three junior synonyms, Anatosaurus, Anatotitan, and Ugrunaaluk.
Edmontosaurus is part of the Hadrosauridae, or duckbill family of dinosaurs, who are known for their distinctive teeth – or as paleontologists call it, their “dental battery”. On each side of the jaw are three rows of sixty or more perfectly interlocking teeth.
Edmontosaurus ate plants and had to be on constant alert for predators such as Tyrannosaurus, Dakotaraptor, and Acheroraptor. Edmontosaurus could not outrun any of the meat-eaters and had to rely on outmaneuvering them – like a crafty football player – and traveling in large herds, where there was safety in numbers.
