North America, Two Medicine Formation
Of all the groups of dinosaurs, hadrosaurs, or duck-billed dinosaurs were one of the most successful. During the middle of the Cretaceous they diversified into many species and came to dominate most terrestrial Laurasian faunas, forming large herds that periodically migrated over long distances, much as wildebeest and caribou do today.
Here two species, Miasaura back and foreground, and Brachylophosaurus centre, intermingle by the banks of a river.
