Having covered a stray Lambeosaurus skull just before the end of last year, it’s time to catch back up with the last of the Carnegie images (and boy have I made these last!). And I do have some more ornithopods to go, or more specifically, hadrosaurs. First off is this rather nice Corythosaurus that’s mounted in a quadrupedal stance. While I’ve not seen that many hadrosaur mounts most have been as bipeds, and those that are down on all fours usually have the head right up, so this is different if nothing else. Nice too to see the ossified tendons being prominent too. Tomorrow, more head crests.

    This rocks. I’m enjoying this slow virtual tour through the Carnegie!

    That head crest is pretty small too.

    The skull is actually a replica from another specimen. I believe there were four juvenile corythosaurs found together in the same quarry (in Alberta), this being one of them.
