Friday/ dinosaur chit-chat

I found this display of two chatty dinosaurs on a rock by the sidewalk close to 18th Ave.

The friendly and chatty little orange guy on the right looks like a parasaurolophus (say ‘para-saw-rolo-fuss’). They lived some 76 to 73 million years ago. They could rear up on their large back legs to reach higher for leaves and tree fruit (they were herbivores). Parasaurolophus should watch out for the grumpy (stuffy?) deinosuchus— a dinosaur relative of today’s alligators, that lived 82 to 73 million years ago. They were capable of killing and eating dinosaurs much larger than themselves.
