Velafrons

Velafrons (meaning “Sailed Forehead”) is a genus of Hadrosaurid from the Late Cretaceous of Mexico. The type species is V. coahuliensis, described by Terry Gates, Scott D. Sampson, and others in 2007. It is known from a near complete adult skull and scattered remains of a single juvenile. The juvenile is already about 25 feet (8 meters), and the adult is estimated at around 33 feet, or 10 meters. It belongs to the tribe of lambiosaurini, making it the first lambiosaur discovered in Mexico.
