The Brachylophosaurus

Copyright 2009 Angie Rodriguez
 New week, new dinosaurs! This week, and I must be on a Hadrosaur kick I didn't realize I was on, we will be working with Brachylophosaurus canadensis. B canadensis has recently been more highlighted than usual in paleo news thanks to Leonardo, the partially mummified find of 2000 and the subsequent finds of Roberta, Peanut, and Marco, having also been found partially mummified, mostly complete, and well articulated in the same general geographic area, providing vital details into the lives of these great animals. These details include skin patterning, stomach contents, and other soft tissue remnants amongst other things such as having numerous well articulated skeletons to work with.
