Physical appearance and biologyEdit
Saurolophus was a rather large hadrosaurid. It had large hind-limbs and small forelimbs. It had a duck-like bill with a large battery of teeth. It also had a small crest at the back of its head.
Saurolophus was mostly tan with a dark grey crest and stripes. In those stripes, it had large eye-shaped patterns.
Behaviour and traitsEdit
Saurolophus was a herbivorous dinosaur. It had a duck-like bill packed with a battery of teeth. Its jaws and teeth were designed for chewing plant matter rather than just swallowing it.
Saurolophus were social animals and lived in herds. This was mostly likely for protection about large predators like Tarbosaurus and maybe even Velociraptor. Rather than fighting, they would flee to escape danger. As they were relatively fast animals, that wouldn't be an issue.
Whilst examining a Therizinosaurus claw, Nigel Marven's tent was flattened by a Saurolophus. Nigel investigated one of the animals feeding on a bush. Whilst observing the creature, it sneezed on Nigel, to his delight. Nigel then returned to the flattened tent for the Therizinosaurus claw.
At the shore of a lake, Nigel found a herd of Saurolophus drinking. After being chased by a pack of Velociraptors, the herd was scared off by a Tarbosaurus.
