  Genus Saurolophus
Saurolophus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in North America and Asia, during the late Cretaceous period, about 74 to 70 million years ago. It is named for the crest on its head: Saurolophus means "crested lizard", and was first described by Barnum Brown in 1912.

North American examples were about 30 feet (9.1 meters) long, whereas in Asia, it grew up to 39 feet (11.9 meters).

Like other duckbilled dinosaurs, Saurolophus is believed to have lived in herds. The crest on its head was hollow, and connected to the nasal passages, and thus could have been used to make sounds. Saurolophus could use these sounds to communicate within its herds, for example to warn of approaching predators.

  • FUN FACTS: Parasaurolophus means "like saurolophus". The male parasaurolophus' head carried a long curving and hollow crest thought to be used for both making a trumpeting sound and as a symbol of recognition. The female's crest was shorter and more curving.
