Edmontosaurus is an extinct genus of hadrosaurid (duck-billed) dinosaur that lived in the Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous (67 to 66 Million Years Ago). They were among the largest of the hadrosaur family and could grow up to 15 metres (49 feet), weighing around 9 metric tons (10 short tons). Unlike other genera of hadrosaurs, Edmontosaurus lacked large, hollow crests and instead had smaller, solid crests or fleshy combs. This classifies then as saurolophine hadrosaurids. These large herbivores were widely distributed across western North America and usually preferred coasts and coastal plains. Edmontosaurus, like most other hadrosaurs, was a facultative biped, meaning that they usually walked on four legs, but could adopt a bipedal stand when necessary.
