DescriptionLambeosaurus lambei is identified by its forward-leaning crest and solid, backward pointing bony spike. The hollow crests may have been used as resonating chambers for calling to one another. Differences in the shape and size of crests would help the duck-billed dinosaurs, or hadrosaurs, to recognize their own species. Lambeosaurus and Corythosaurus are the most common duck-bills from the badlands of Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta. This specimen was collected by Levi Sternberg in 1919 and was first mounted in this pose in 1968.
