About Gryposaurus

Gryposaurus was discovered and named in 1913 by famous palentologist Lawrence Lambe. The fossils, which were first found in Alberta, Canada, consist of a number of skull pieces and many skin impressions. These skin impressions show that Gryposaurus' skin was covered in small polygon shaped scales. The name Curvey Nose refers to the high bump that appears on the front end of its nose. Gryposaurus was a typical hadrosaur, or duck-billed dinosaur. The name duckbill refers to the duck-like flat bill that these dinosaurs have. This bill is completly toothless. However, Gryposaurus did have teeth further back in its mouth.
