Parasaurolophus Nest

Parasaurolophus Nest

Parasaurolophus is most easily recognized by the curved six-foot crest on its head. The function of the crest is not completely understood, nor do scientist know for sure whether Parasaurolophus walked on two legs or four. Parasaurolophus had a number of features similar to present day birds including a duck-bill, bird-like hips and were ‘ornithopods’ which means ‘bird foot.’
