WHAT DOES HADROSAUR MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hadrosaur

Hadrosaurid

Hadrosaurids, or duck-billed dinosaurs, are members of the ornithischian family Hadrosauridae. The family, which includes ornithopods such as Edmontosaurus and Parasaurolophus, was a common herbivore in the Upper Cretaceous Period of what is now Asia, Europe and North America. Hadrosaurids are descendants of the Upper Jurassic/Lower Cretaceous iguanodontian dinosaurs and had a similar body layout. Hadrosaurids are divided into two principal subfamilies: the lambeosaurines, which had hollow cranial crests or tubes, and the saurolophines, identified as hadrosaurines in most pre-2010 works, which lacked hollow cranial crests. Saurolophines tended to be bulkier than lambeosaurines. Lambeosaurines are divided in Aralosaurins, Lambeosaurins, Parasaurolophins and Tsintaosaurins, while Saurolophines are divided into Saurolophins, Brachylophosaurins and Kritosaurins.
