Ouranosaurus (meaning "brave lizard") was an iguanodont dinosaur that lived during the Early Cretaceous period in Cretaceous Africa. Ouranosaurus had a hump similar to that of present day camels. Ouranosaurus lived in Africa during the Cretaceous period, alongside predators like Suchomimus, Eocarcharia, and Sarcosuchus, and was their common prey.
Ouranosaurus was originally supposed to appear in the Riverside scene for Jurassic Park III but it was cut from the film.
Ouranosaurus was featured as a two star large herbivore in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, and they serve as the preferred prey for Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus. They also seem to be friends with Edmontosaurus, even though the two dinosaurs lived on two totally different continents. However being a distant cousin to the later Ornithopod, this would be considered accurate.
The coloration is a grey with a greenish tint, with black markings, with a tan molten orange on the shoulders and sail.
Ouranosaurus is one of the available dinosaurs that can be created in the simulation game Jurassic Park: Builder. Its creation is needed to in Henry Wu's mission Conference Star. It, however, only vagley resemble the real creature. It lacks its thumb claw, the sail is too small, and its hadrosaur-like beak is missing.
Ouranosarus can be created in the DVD game Jurassic Park: Explorer.
Ouranosaurus is included in Jurassic World Evolution’s Claire’s Sanctuary DLC, that was released on June 18, 2019.
