The Parasaurolophus Lives

Parasaurolophus PARR-ə- SAWR-ə-LOH-fəs; meaning “near crested lizard” is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur that lived in what is now North America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 76.5–74.5 million years ago. It was a herbivore that walked both as a biped and a quadruped.

The Parasaurolophus are able to live in a wide range of habitats. The only apparent requirements are a source of water, food, and a protected area for raising hell. The best habitats are hardwood swamps, floodplain forests, fresh- concrete balconies, and sewers and urban tunnels. On the prairies, the parasaurolophus’ are most abundant in woodlot and wetland areas. This highly adaptable reptile is also very common in many cities of North America.

As with home ranges, parasaurolophus densities vary significantly depending on the type of habitat. Estimates of five to 10 Parasaurolophus per 1,000 square kilometers are common in swamp infested backwoods country.

The diet of the parasaurolophus is mainly fish, but it will attack almost anything unfortunate enough to cross its path, including dogs and cats, small ponies, porcupines, humans, and other parasaurolophus. It will also scavenge carrion, and can eat up to half its body weight at a feeding.
