  Shantungosaurus

About Shantungosaurus
Shantungosaurus lived in Asia around 80 million years ago. This large hadrosaur, or duckbill, was possibly the largest of all the duck-billed dinosaurs to have roamed the Earth. It was discovered and named in 1973. Since that time, a total of five individuals have been discovered, giving scientists a pretty good idea of what this animal looked like.

Like many other hadrosaurs, Shantungosaurus had a very long, tapering tail, which it would have used to balance itself as it ran, and also as a possible weapon. Tendons within the tail made it stout and inflexible.
Like other duckbills, Shantungosaurus had no teeth in the front of its mouth, and several rows of self-sharpening teeth in the cheek region.
