Edmontosaurus is a genus of crestless hadrosaurid (duck-billed) dinosaur that lived in North America during the Late Cretaceous period.[60-66]

Edmontosaurus appeared in the eleventh episode of Jurassic Fight Club, "Raptors vs. T-Rex", where one stumbles into Dromaesaurus territory and is killed, though it manages to kill two pack members.

DescriptionEdit

The large, slow-moving Edmontosaurus measured up to 13 meters (42.5 feet) long, stood 13 feet tall at the hips, and weighed more than four tons. It walked on two legs, but could also drop down to all fours, which allowed it to graze on low-lying plants. It had big hind legs ending in mitten-like paws, smaller and shorter arms with hoofed feet and a 23-foot-long pointy tail. Like all hadrosauroid dinosaurs, its most distinctive physical feature was its flat, duck-like beak. Edmontosaurus had the longest and broadest snout of all the hadrosauroids.

Fighting styleEdit

Because it lacked the type of body armor that protected other dinosaurs, such as ceratopsians, Edmontosaurus had only its large size and strength to deter and defend itself against attackers. It lived in very large herds, and attempted to avoid predators with its keen sense of vision and hearing. When attacked, Edmontosaurus probably kicked with its powerful hind legs and used its heavy tail to knock into its assailant.

Abilities

Strength: can squash a predator by its legs.

Speed: can run up to 30 mph for a long time to probably outlast a Dromaeosaurus.

Bite: can grab a raptor in its mouth

Weapons: tail, head, hooves, and bill

DietEdit

Edmontosaurus was one of the largest herbivores in its environment, and one of the most successful (as evidenced by the number of fossils that have been found). It used its tough beak to gather and eat conifer needles, twigs, seeds and other plant material.Its predators included giant meat-eaters such as Albertosaurus and Tyrannosaurus as well as smaller but vicious raptor dinosaurs like Dromaeosaurus.

TriviaEdit

  • One of the reasons hadrosauroid dinosaurs may have been so successful was that their jaws were filled with huge numbers of extremely effective teeth, which allowed them to get more energy out of food faster. Whenever a tooth wore away or broke off, it was replaced by a new one, so that they had hundreds of teeth in their mouth at all times.
