Pink Dinosaur #209

Pink Lambeosaurus by David Tana

22 – Lambeosaurus lambei -  this hadrosaurid with the hatchet-like crest  would have easily distinguished  itself from other lambeosaurines that shared its Late Cretaceous North American world (~76-75 mya).  Many have suggested that the mostly hollow crest acted as a resonating chamber  for making distinct sounds that, along with the visual cue, would help distinguish them from other hadrosaurines.  The reference for this cranial restoration is a skull on display at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.  Pen and color pencil on paper.
