Description

Notable for its distinctive duck-billed snout and striking head crest, Tsintaosaurus is an herbivorous hadrosaurid that can grow up to 10m in length and weigh in excess of three tons. Despite its relatively large size, Tsintaosaurus was capable of walking on four legs or two and could reach high speeds when fleeing from predators. Its name comes from the location of its discovery, Qingdao in China.

Discovery

Tsintaosaurus was discovered in 1950, when a range of hadrosaurid bones was uncovered in the Jingangkou Formation, Shandong. Although many of the bones were ascribed to existing genera, one partial skeleton required further analysis, so were referred to respected Chinese paleontologist C. C. Young – it wasn’t until 1958 that Young formally declared it a new genus, named Tsintaosaurus.

Paleoecology

Tsintaosaurus dates back to the Late Cretaceous period approximately 71-84m years ago, and co-existed with many other dinosaurs including Sinoceratops and the large predator Zhuchengtyrannus. The dry climate in China at this time meant that Tsintaosaurus stayed close to rivers and swamps, where food and water were easier to come by.
