Ouranosaurus Information:

Ouranosaurus is a genus of herbivorous dinosaur that lived during the Early Cretaceous period, approximately 112 to 98 million years ago. It belongs to a group of dinosaurs known as ornithopods, which are characterized by their beak-like mouths and herbivorous diets. Ouranosaurus is particularly notable for its distinctive sail-like structure on its back, which sets it apart from many other dinosaurs. The name "Ouranosaurus" is derived from Greek words and means "brave lizard." It was named by paleontologist Philippe Taquet in 1976. Ouranosaurus was a medium-sized dinosaur, reaching lengths of around 20 to 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) and standing about 10 feet (3 meters) tall. One of the most distinctive features of Ouranosaurus is the sail-like structure on its back. This sail was formed by elongated neural spines, which were extensions of the vertebrae. The purpose of this sail is still debated among scientists, but it may have served various functions such as thermoregulation, display, or even for fat storage. Ouranosaurus was a herbivore, which means it primarily ate plants. It likely fed on vegetation like ferns, cycads, and low-lying plants that were abundant during the Early Cretaceous period. Fossils of Ouranosaurus have been found in what is now modern-day Niger, Africa. During the Early Cretaceous, this region was a lush, semi-arid floodplain with a mix of vegetation and water sources. Like many other ornithopods, Ouranosaurus was a bipedal dinosaur, meaning it walked on its hind legs. Its front limbs were shorter and likely used for tasks such as grasping vegetation. It is unclear whether Ouranosaurus lived in herds or had solitary lifestyles. Fossil evidence does suggest some level of social interaction among individuals. Ouranosaurus, like many other dinosaurs, became extinct around 98 million years ago, possibly due to environmental changes and competition with other species. Ouranosaurus is an interesting dinosaur due to its unique sail and the mysteries surrounding its purpose. Fossil discoveries and ongoing research continue to shed light on the lives and behaviors of these ancient creatures.
