Best dinosaur pictures - Anatosaurus

Anatosaurus was 13 meters long herbivore dinosaur. It lived 70 million years ago in North America.

Edmontosaurus (Anatosaurus) had a very long and flat skull, and the beak, broad and flat, much like a duck's bill. The beak itself was toothless, but it had three rows of hundreds of closely packed cheek teeth that were used for grinding up the tough plants. It was a slow-moving animal, with medium-sized neck and sturdy trunk extending into an unusually long tail. It was bipedal, but may have walked on all four legs, to graze low-lying plant.

Best dinosaur pictures Anatosaurus!

This dinosaur was erstwhile dubbed Anatosaurus ("duck-lizard", because of its wide, duck-like beak; Latin "anas"=duck + Greek "sauros"=lizard), but the scientific classification has in the meantime changed its name to Edmontosaurus.

It existed in the late Cretaceous period, some 67-66 million years ago. This prehistoric herbivorous animal was up to 12 m long, 4 m high, and weighed 4 tons. Its fossilized remains have been found in North America.
