Bactrosaurus

About Bactrosaurus

This Hadrosaur, or duck-billed dinosaur, lived around 95 million years ago during the Middle Cretaceous Period. Like other duck-billed dinosaurs, it had a toothless beak-shaped opening at the front of its mouth, with rows of self-sharpening teeth located further back in the cheek region. It also had a line of spine-like projections along its back and tail that probably supported a flap of skin or muscle. This feature led to its name Bactrosaurus, which means "Club-Spined Lizard." Bactrosaurus was discovered in Asia and received its name in 1931.
