Dinosaur of the Day #90 -Parasaurolophus

Lythronax

Parasaurolophus is a dinosaur that lived about 76 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous Period. It was first discovered in 1922 in Alberta, Canada by Dr. William A. Parks. He named it Parasaurolophus, a name which means “crested lizard”. A name he gave the animal because of its prodigious bony crest that exists on top of its head. Fossils of this dinosaur have not only been found in Canada, but has also been found in parts of Utah and New Mexico.

This dinosaur is estimated to have been about 40 feet long, 8 feet tall at the hips and weigh about 2 tons. The bony crest on top of its head is believed to have grown as long as 6 feet long. Some scientists believe that air could be pushed through this crest and that enabled this dinosaur to make low frequency sounds. This means that it could use it like a wood wind instrument. In fact, the canals that exist inside of it look very muchy like a European Crumhorn.

It is also believed that this dinosaur not only traveled on all four legs but could also run on two legs when necessary. Parasaurolophus is believed to have been a land based herbivore. This means that its diet probably consisted of ginkos, pine needles and leaves.

While the exact intelligence of this dinosaur can’t be accurately determined, many scientist believe that it has an average intelligence among other dinosaurs for its time. For example, it is believed that it wasn’t as smart as Carnosaurs, but that it wasn’t as dumb as Stegosaurs. This dinosaur is also believed to have been a herd animal—much like buffalo are.

I never had the chance to use this dino on my team but both of it’s hybrid, Tragodistis and Paramoloch were on my team at one point. With Impact and Run, it should be pretty useful in the lower arena when combined with other dinosaurs with Swap In Abilities.

I’ve used both as well but prefer Paramoloch. Parasaurolophus never made it on to my team at all. It’s yet another dinosaur that seems to be just a DNA farm for it’s hybrids.

Paramoloch was awesome! Especially when it had her 20% stun ability. Sadly, I had to replace her with Tragodistis which I’m probably going to replace with Trykosaurus if I can get him this weekend.

Parasaurolophus is my favourite ‘real’ dinosaur :heart_eyes: and game wise it’s unique Tuoramoloch is also my favourite!

She used to be a beast when her abilities include the Stun and a speed of 128(If I am not wrong) along with a lot of HP. I love her hybrid: Tragod, currently level 23. Will try to get her to Level 30, may be after 3 or 4 years from now. :slight_smile:

I visit L4 often to feed my Tragodistis with all the Paras I find there. She’s 29 now and I’ll probably max her out.
