What kind of animal is Barsboldia?

Barsboldia is a type of hadrosaurid dinosaur that lived in what is now Mongolia during the late Cretaceous period, about 70 million years ago.

It was a herbivore that could grow up to 14 meters (46 feet) long and weigh up to 5 tons (5.5 US tons).

It had very tall and club-shaped neural spines on its back, especially over its hips.

Barsboldia is named after Rinchen Barsbold, a famous Mongolian paleontologist who studied many dinosaurs from his country.


Where does the Barsboldia live?

Barsboldia is an extinct genus of hadrosaurid dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous period, about 71 million years ago.
It is known from fossils found in the Nemegt Formation of Ömnogöv', Mongolia.
The Nemegt Formation is a geological formation that preserves a diverse and well-preserved assemblage of dinosaurs, mammals, reptiles, fish, and plants.
It is located in the Gobi Desert, a vast arid region that covers parts of southern Mongolia and northern China.
The climate of the Nemegt Formation during the Cretaceous was probably warm and humid, with abundant rivers and lakes that supported a rich ecosystem.

Barsboldia was a large hadrosaur, measuring about 10 meters (33 feet) in length and weighing about 5 metric tons (5.5 short tons).
It had a hollow crest on its head, formed by enlarged bones of the skull that contained nasal passages.
The crest may have been used for visual and auditory communication, as well as for regulating body temperature.
Barsboldia also had very tall neural spines along its backbone, especially over the hips.
These spines may have supported a sail-like structure that could have also helped with thermoregulation, display, or balance.

Barsboldia was a herbivore, feeding on plants with a sophisticated skull that allowed it to chew its food.
It had hundreds of teeth that were constantly replaced as they wore out.
Barsboldia could walk on either two or four legs, depending on the speed and terrain.
It may have lived in herds for protection and social interaction.
Barsboldia shared its habitat with other dinosaurs, such as the tyrannosaurid Tarbosaurus, the ankylosaurid Tarchia, the oviraptorid Nemegtomaia, and the therizinosaurid Therizinosaurus.
