Muttaburrasaurus

Muttaburrasaurus (meaning ” Muttaburra Lizard”) is a species of iguanodontian ¬†from Early Cretaceous Australia. In 1963, Doug Langdon found the Muttaburrasaurus. It was finally named in 1981, Muttaburrasaurus langdoni, after Doug Langdon. It is the largest herbivorous dinosaur from Australia ¬†that is not a sauropod. It was 26 feet long (8 meters) and about 5 tons. It has a nose sack it uses to communicate with its herd. About two other iguanodontids , Altirhinus and Gryposaurus have this unusual feature.
