Muttaburrasaurus was a member of the same dinosaur family as Iguanodon. It was a medium-sized, plant-eating dinosaur that roamed what is now Australia. It had a large bump on its nose that may have been used to amplify the sounds it made so it could be heard at great distances.
Muttaburrasaurus was a very typical member of the Iguanodon ia, and it seems to be very closely related to Camptosaurus. Its teeth were a bit different from those of other Iguanodon s, as they were seemingly designed for cutting.
