Hadrosaur dinosaurs were large creatures ranging between 7 to 8 meters in length, they were the genus of the hadrosaurid ornithopod dinosaurs. They had beaks used to crop foliage aiding their plant-based diet. These duck-billed dinosaurs are believed to have lived in small herds; the females would have laid fifteen to twenty eggs in a circle in which other members may have helped care for. There have been different descriptions of the dinosaur over the years due to incompletion of the skeleton, to this day the skull has yet to be found.
