Where does the Hadrosaurid live?

Hadrosaurids were a group of dinosaurs that lived in different continents during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 100.5 to 66 million years ago.

They are also known as duck-billed dinosaurs, because of the shape of their snouts.

Some of the places where hadrosaurid fossils have been found are:
  • North America: This was the most diverse and abundant continent for hadrosaurids, with many genera and species known from different formations.
    Some examples are Hadrosaurus, Edmontosaurus, Parasaurolophus, and Maiasaura.

  • Asia: Hadrosaurids were also common and diverse in Asia, especially in China and Mongolia.
    Some examples are Shantungosaurus, Saurolophus, Tsintaosaurus, and Yamatosaurus.

  • Europe: Hadrosaurids were less common in Europe, but still present in some regions.
    Some examples are Telmatosaurus, Pararhabdodon, and Canardia.

  • Africa: Hadrosaurids were rare in Africa, and only a few genera are known.
    Some examples are Ouranosaurus and Lurdusaurus.

  • South America: Hadrosaurids were also rare in South America, and only one genus is known: Secernosaurus.

What does the Hadrosaurid look like?

Hadrosaurids, or duck-billed dinosaurs, were a group of herbivorous ornithopods that lived in the Late Cretaceous period.

They had a flat, broad snout that resembled a duck's bill, and a complex dental system with multiple rows of teeth for grinding plant matter.

Some hadrosaurids also had hollow or solid crests on their heads, which may have been used for communication or display.

Hadrosaurids were mostly quadrupedal, but could also walk on two legs when needed.

They ranged in size from 3 to 15 meters in length, and weighed from 0.5 to 10 tons.
