Lambeosaurus was a crested, duckbilled vegetarian that lived around 80 to 65 million years ago during the late Cretaceous period.

Like all Ornithischians Lambeosaurus had a toothless beak for stripping pine needles and other tough vegetation off branches, and lots of teeth in is jaws for chewing it.

Lambeosaurus had a large hollow crest on top of its head through which its nostrils went. The crest was probably used for mating display.

Lambeosaurus means "Lambe's lizard" because its teeth resembled that of a modern Iguana. It was named by Dr. William A. Parks in 1923 in honour of an early Canadian fossil hunter called Lawrence Lambe. Fossils have been found in Canada, North America and Mexico.
