Dinosaurs we would Like #15 - Corythosaurus



Quite well known for its strange crest, Corythosaurus has made many media appearances including some action in Jurassic Park 3. A member of the lambeosaurinae family, it inhabited late Cretaceous North America in the Dinosaur Park formation, and was quite large at 9 meters (30 feet) long and 3 tons. It’s crest resembles a Greek Corinthian helmet, for which it was named, and it was surprisingly complex on the inside with chambers and nasal passages. The resonation would’ve allowed it to make interesting calls and bellows, which would’ve been low pitched and very loud. This would’ve been an advantageous warning adaptation for the large herds Corythosaurus might’ve formed, because the region was teeming with predators great and small. It was known to have had a sensitive beak despite having its batteries of cheek teeth, and would’ve fed on fruits, conifer needles, and pine seeds very selectively.

Interesting facts:

  • Corythosaurus was thought to be a water dweller with webbed feet, but this proved incorrect. They would’ve had a thick pad encompassing their toes almost like a mitten, just like modern mammals such as rhinos.
  • A Corythosaurus fossil specimen was found with soft tissue and skin impressions. They would’ve had bumpy polygonal scales with some small lightly protective scutes. It seems most hadrosaurs would’ve had nearly the same scale patterning.
  • Unlike other hadrosaurs that would’ve dwelled out in the open floodplains and grasslands, Corythosaurus preferred to be hidden in among the dense forest. Here it would’ve had less competition from the many types of herbivorous dinosaurs for the succulent fruits it needed. The thick tree cover might’ve also served as additional protection from large predators like Daspletosaurus.
  • It’s name means “Helmet Lizard.”

Sorry to be that person but Iguanadon is an Iguanadontid and not a hadrosaurid. They’re all ornithopods however,and thus closely related. Iguanadon’s closest relatives are other Iguanadontids such as Tenontosaurus

Oh I need to revise my dino knowledge :slight_smile:

So far it seems the carnivores always have the higher votes, except for Styraco. Interesting :thinking:

Any other popular herbivores you guys want to get a post and vote?

Shantungosaurus maybe?
There’s Dryosaurus, or even Homalocephale
