Tour Information

Release From Hatchery

With this animal, the Corythosaurus, you can really see chaos in action. Think of all the combinations and patterns life tries out looking for that perfect structure. It's not about success... life is about refining failure... over and over and over again. Always a work in progress. Ourselves included.

- Dr. Ian Malcolm

Bio (With Base Stats)


Corythosurus is a hadrosaur which eats moderate amounts from ground herbivore feeders.
They live in large social groups to survive predation and like to have dinosaurs from other specias nearby.
They like good sized grassland areas with a slightly smaller coverage of forest.
They are vulnerable to all predators.

Corythosaurus are hadrosaurs (duck-billed dinosaurs) once living in North America. They are herbivores that lieved in herds. They were one of the larger types of hadrosaurs.
Their heads had crests with nasal passages that are similar in structure to that of the cassowary. This was most likely used for vocalization. Their name means "corinthian-crested lizard" in reference to this crest. The crests also show dimorphism between the genders, with males believed to have the larger crests for competing for mates.


The first specimen was discovered at Red Deer River in Alberta, Canada in 1911. Further fossils were found over the following few years, eventually identifying two species for the genus.


Corythosaurus ranged widely in the various formations it's been recovered from. It has been noted that individual groups had small ranges compared to their modern mammal equivalents.
