Parasaurolophus

  • Found only in North America
  • Lived in the Late Cretaceous Period
  • Three different species
  • Weight 2.5 tons
  • Could walk on two or four legs (though probably preferred two based on bone structure)
  • The giant head crest is almost always described as being used to making sounds, due to the hollow tubes in it, as well as sexual display, and temperature regulation
  • Herbivore
  • Rare, as far as fossils go.
