Uninterrupted growth in a non-polar hadrosaur explains the gigantism among duck-billed dinosaurs

Tomasz Szczygielski, Justyna Słowiak, Łucja Fostowicz-Frelik & Michał Ginter
Duck-billed dinosaurs (Hadrosauridae) were the most common ornithopods of the Late Cretaceous. Second only to sauropods and in many cases exceeding the sizes of the largest land mammals (such as indricotheres or proboscideans), they represent the largest terrestrial herbivores that walked the Earth. Despite their gigantic sizes, diversity, and abundance, their growth strategies remain poorly understood. Herein, we examine the bone microstructure of several Mongolian hadrosauroids of varied adult sizes. The small and middle-sized species...
