Description

Ouranosaurus is a large iguanodont, averaging over 8m in length and weighing around two and a half tons, and is easily recognizable thanks to the large hump on its back. This herbivorous dinosaur is native to Niger in Africa and subsists on a diet of tough vegetation, using its horned beak and flat teeth to tear off and chew plants and leaves. The name Ouranosaurus means ‘courageous monitor lizard’.

Discovery

French paleontologist Philippe Taquet discovered Ouranosaurus in 1965 while investigating the Elrhaz Formation in Niger, when his team unearthed multiple iguanodont skeletons that had no previous classification. Further remains were unearthed in subsequent years, and in 1976 two of the most complete skeletons were officially described as a new genus and given the name Ouranosaurus.

Paleoecology

Ouranosaurus lived on the floodplains of Africa during the Early Cretaceous period, around 100-110m years ago, and tended to stay close to rivers where there was plenty of vegetation. A wide variety of dinosaurs co-existed during this period, including Suchomimus and Nigersaurus.
