More Lambeosaurus heads

Right at the end of last year I put up this little post of a Lambeosaur head sitting in a German museum basement. This time it’s equally exotic (more stuff from Tokyo) though this time at least visible to the public. It’s a pair of skulls, quite obviously, and I’m happy to identify them as far as Lambeosaurus, but no further than that (and no, I wasn’t smart enough to take a photo of the label, though of course that may not have been up to date or right anyway). Having put up Nipponosaurus the other day it seemed worth continuing with the hadrosaur theme and provide a rather better idea of the range of skulls for this genus.

    Thank you for the latest hadrosaur posts, Dave. Friends know I’m a little crazy about them…

    I wonder if this might be an opportune moment to ask whether you have any more skeletal material of hadrosaur hands you could share at all? I know you posted about it once long ago, and that is the post I always show to folks to demonstrate that, quite contrary to so many depictions, hadrosaurs do have claws on their hands. If you have any more pictures of them in which the unguals can be clearly seen on all digits (except the ‘pinky’, of course), that would be just wonderful.

    I’ve never seen a hadrosaur crest like the one on the left.

      It’s pretty amazing, I had to click on the picture to make sure it wasn’t some of the bones in the background giving the illusion of making a fancier crest… quite astonishing.

    It must be a chimaera–Saurolophus and Olorotitan, perhaps?

    The skull on the left is L. lambei, and the one on the right is L. clavinitialis. They’re both casts of Tyrrell Museum specimens.
