BRACHYLOPHOSAURUS CANADENSIS
"Canadian Short Crested Lizard"
Sternberg, 1953
Length: 9m (30ft)
Weight: 2.2 tonnes (2.5 tons)
Location: Alberta, Canada
Era: Campanian age, upper Cretaceous (75 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Ornithischia
Cerapoda
Ornithopoda
Iguanodontia
Dryomorpha
Ankylopollexia
Styracosterna
Hadrosauriformes
Hadrosauroidea
Hadrosauridae
Saurolophinae

Notes:
Several Brachylophosaurus specimens have been given nicknames--Leonardo, Roberta, Peanut, and Marco being the most well known. Of these, Leonardo is the most spectacular, being partially mummified, a truly rare find among dinosaur fossils.

UPDATE FEB 5, 2013:
As it had come to light after I had finished the Hadrosaurids for my project that they actually could not pronate their hands, I went back and altered Brachylophosaurus accordingly. I also updated the ridge on its back to better match the way I drew Hadrosaurid back ridges later on in the project.

I agree, the colors are very imaginative. It reminds me of John Sibbick's art.
