Edmontosaurus was a large hadrosaur (aka “duck-billed dinosaur”). It lived in the late Cretaceous Period alongside Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex. It is one of the few dinosaur genera to provide many preserved examples of soft tissue (skin). One recent specimen even showcased a soft “crest” on its head, like the comb of a rooster.

  • Scientific Name: Edmontosaurus (“Edmonton [capital city of Alberta, Canada] Lizard”)
  • Characteristics: This hand-painted duck-billed dinosaur figure is sculpted with accuracy based on the latest scientific discoveries, right down to the rooster-like comb on its head.
  • Size and Color: This Edmontosaurus, while not as big as the real thing, is still quite large at just about 10 ½ inches in length. It stands just under 4 inches tall at the highest point on its back. It’s about the size of a standard piece of paper cut in half length-wise. The figure is brown above, with peach-orange on its sides fading to cream colored below. Its hide features brown spots while its face and tail are striped. The distinctive comb atop its head is deep red.

History:

Edmontosaurus has been known by many names over the years, including Anatosaurus (“Duck Lizard”) and Anatotitan (“Large Duck”). It has also been associated with other dinosaurs that we now know to be separate animals, including Trachodon and Hadrosaurus.

Three specimens of Edmontosaurus show remarkable preservation. These include the “Trachodon Mummy” discovered in 1908 that provided a great deal if information on the skin of the animal and what its scales looked like. Another Edmontosaurus, nicknamed “Dakota” was discovered in 2006, and featured skin impressions as well as preserved muscles and tendons. The third specimen shows that at least one species Edmontosaurus possessed a comb-like fleshy crest, unlike the bony crests of hadrosaurs like Parasaurolophus.
