Edmontosaurus is a genus of crestless hadrosaurid (duck-billed) dinosaur that lived in North America during the Late Cretaceous period [73 million - 66 million years ago].

Edmontosaurus appeared in the eleventh episode “Raptors vs T Rex”. an edmontosaurus was walking in a forest alone with no herd. He tries searching for a new herd but ends up in dromeosaurus territory. The alpha raptor attacks the duckbill causing it to be on high alert and the others join in. The edmontosaurus uses its feet to crush a raptor and another one by flinging it into a fallen tree. The edmontosaurus is in so much pain he wants to defend himself by using its tail. The duckbill runs but the raptors follow him he tries using his tail to hit the raptors but the raptors dodged his tail. Far away a T rex used its feet pads to sense the noise in its head and also smelled the blood which immediately sent it running. The raptors have drove the giant dino on their feeding area. in the end the duckbill lost all of his energy and died because of a massive amount of blood loss. just as the raptors were about to eat they heard footsteps. The hungry T. rex arrived and the raptors had what the tyrannosaurus wanted. The raptors and the T. rex roared at each other wanting to fight over the carcass but the raptors can’t fight a t rex and wait until he leaves some scraps. The t rex leaves leaving some scraps for the raptors to eat.

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 and Combat: Being very large it’s size it’s best weapon to crush its enemies down with its front legs and can swing its body to shake off enemies.

Speed and Agility: Can run up to 30 mph for a long time to probably outlast a Dromaeosaurus and it’s agility can make quick turns.

Jaw strength: It’s strong jaw can crush Dromaeosaurus though Unkown it’s enough to kill one.

Endurance and Stamima: Though it had fought so many Dromaeosaurus as proven to have great endurance to take all those attacks and great stamina from long distance travel then run as far as it can to fight the entire pack.

Physical Weaponary: Head, body, tail and front legs

Diet And Natural EnemiesEdit

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.

It’s 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.
