This replica skull is from a juvenile Lambeosaurus. The large hollow bony crest had not yet developed on this young and small specimen. The skull is shown in a ¾ profile and is flat on the back. This specimen is made of hydrostone, which is an extra hard form of plaster. It has the weight of a real fossil.
Lambeosaurus was a crested, duck-billed dinosaur. Its forward-leaning, hollow, bony crest was as big or bigger than the rest of its skull and may have been used to produce sounds, enhance its sense of smell, and/or used in courtship displays. Lambeosaurus' nostrils went up through the crest. Its snout was narrow and ended in a beak that was wide and blunt. Males may have had larger crests than females. Lambeosaurus had pebbly-textured skin and may have had webbed fingers. Its sight and hearing were keen, but it had no natural defenses.
Lambeosaurus grew to be about 30-50 feet long (9-15 m), weighing 5.6 tons. It is the largest-known duck-bill dinosaur. Lambeosaurus lived during the Cretaceous period, about 83 to 65 million years ago, at the end of the Mesozoic.
