Hadrosaurus lived approximately 70 to 84 million years ago. In 1838 Hadrosaurus's bones was discovered by John Estaugh Hopkin. However, it was not fully studied later, until 20 years later in 1858; William Parker Foulke who is a vacationing scientist noticed the bones. And then, he excavated them. There are many discoveries about the dinosaur and they named it Hadrosaurus that means “bulky lizard.”
All recreations of this dinosaur have been made using the head of a Gryposaurus. That’s because it is considered the prototypical hadrosaur. Therefore, it is speculated that Hadrosaurus probably behaved in very much the same way as Gryposaurus did. That is probably traveled North America in herds and lived off vegetation such as club mosses and seed ferns.
They have found one skeleton of this dinosaur. This dinosaur is 32 feet long and weighed around 4 tons. Paleontologists have found dozens of teeth and the rest of the skeleton of them and they said that this species is an herbivore. They eat plants.
