Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in North America

Kritosaurus was a duck-billed dinosaur with a rounded hump in front of its eyes. However, since only part of a skull has been found, it is hard to say what it really looked like. It is possible that it is an already named hadrosaur. It would have been a typical member of the hadrosaur family, feeding on plants, traveling in herds, and nesting together to protect its babies.

Because so little of this dinosaur has been discovered, some scientists feel it may be a misidentified Gryposaurus or Hadrosaurus.
