DINO-A-DAY #14: Prosaurolophus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Prosaurolophus
PRONUNCIATION: pro-SAWR-OL-uh-fus
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Canada, 1915
FUN FACT: Prosaurolophus was named because of the similarity of its skull shape to Saurolophus before scientists discovered that it had been reconstructed incorrectly.
