Parasaurolophus life size fleshed out model

This life-size in the flesh dinosaur was a featured attraction at the Trex Café in Kansas City. This Rainforest Café style restaurant featured dozens of dinosaurs and other fossils. They even had dozens of fossils in the restrooms. The featured dinosaurs were animatronics with movement and sound. When Trex Café closed its doors in 2017 Prehistoric Planet purchased many of the dinosaurs and fixtures. The company that removed the dinosaurs did a poor job of preserving the electronics and pneumatic plumbing to them. Thus the dinosaurs are being offered in as condition. Given proper attention to the electronics and pneumatics they may come alive again.

Parasaurolophus was a long-crested, duck-billed (hadrosaur) dinosaur. Its extremely long, backwards-leaning, hollow, bony crest was as bigger than the rest of its skull and may have been used to produce a low-frequency, foghorn-like sound, enhance its sense of smell, and/or used in courtship displays. The Parasaurolophus' nostrils (at the end of its snout) went up through the crest and back down it, forming four tubes. The crest was up to 6 feet (1.8 m) long. Its snout was narrow and shorter than other hadrosaur snouts. There may have been sex differences in the length of the crest; males may have had longer crests. Parasaurolophus also had a notch in its back, right where the crest would touch the back when its head leaned backwards.

Parasaurolophus grew to be about 40-ft (12 m) long and 8 feet (2.8 m) tall at the hips. It weighed about 2 tons. It had pebbly-textured skin, a spoon-shaped beak, and a pointy tail. It may have had webbed fingers, giving it a mitten-like hand, but some paleontologists argue that the web-like fossilized hands are an artifact of the fossilization process. Its sight and hearing were keen, but it had no natural defenses. It had a toothless, horny beak and numerous cheek teeth.

Parasaurolophus lived during the late Cretaceous period, about 76-65 Million years ago, toward the end of the Mesozoic, the Age of Reptiles. Among the contemporaries of Parasaurolophus in the late-Cretaceous (in North America) were Albertosaurus, Nanotyrannus, Lambeosaurus (another hadrosaur), Euoplocephalus, Kritosaurus, and Pachyrhinosaurus.

Parasaurolophus was described and named by Dr. William A. Parks in 1922 from an almost complete skeleton found in Alberta, Canada. Many fossils have been found in North America (in Alberta, Canada and New Mexico and Utah in the USA).
