The nests at the Egg Mountain site were evenly spaced. The distance between each nest was roughly the length of an adult Maiasaura. Large groups, or colonies, of Maiasaura probably nested together to protect themselves from attack. Although this site is called Egg Mountain, it was not mountainous during the Late Cretaceous Period. #7) An adult Maiasaura reached a size of feet in length. It weighed tons. #8) The shells found in the nests of the Maiasaura are all broken up. #9) The front teeth of many dinosaurs like Maiasaura are very interesting. There is a heavy enamel layer on the outside of the upper teeth, but that very same layer is on the inside of the.

  Maiasaura nested the way modern seabirds do, with the nests close together: Maiasaura nests, in fact, were only 23 feet apart (the adult is a full 30 feet in length). Nests were made of earth, which I’ve emphasized in the diorama, and could have from between 30 and 40 eggs arranged in a spiral or circular pattern. Maiasaura is a large herbivorous dinosaur from Late Cretaceous North America. Maiasaura is a member of the hadrosaurid family, the most successful herbivorous dinosaurs of the Cretaceous and as such has a beak for cropping vegetation and batteries of densely packed teeth at the back of its jaws for grinding tough plant matter. Maiasaura has a pair of small crests above its eyes, which are.

Maiasaura (from the Greek "μαία" and the feminine form of Latin saurus, meaning "good mother reptile" or "good mother lizard") is a large herbivorous hadrosaurid ("duck-billed") dinosaur genus that lived in the area currently covered by the state of Montana in the Upper Cretaceous Period (mid to late Campanian), about million years : †Hadrosauridae.

Scientists believe Maiasaura were among the most social of all dinosaurs. The animals lived in large groups called herds and built their nests near each other. Maiasaura had wide snouts that Author: WorldBookNetwork. Maiasaura might appear to be a rather plain looking hadrosaurid,‭ ‬but its real importance is not about its looks but upon the remains of nests that members of this genus created.‭ ‬One of the most significant fossil sites associated with Maiasaura is an area that we know today as‭ ‘‬Egg Mountain‭’‬.‭ ‬Here a.

The shovel-beaked dinosaur Maiasaura, which means “good mother lizard,” got its name in part from Marion Brandvold’s discovery of a nest containing baby. The Maiasaura’s round nests were six or seven feet wide and could hold up to 25 eggs.

The hatched babies were about one foot long. Adult Maiasaurs weighed almost 6, pounds and were almost 30 feet long. The nests of Troodon at Egg Mountain itself are about half the diameter of the Maiasaura nests. Maiasaura was approximately 30 feet long, 8 feet tall and probably weighed around 4 tons.

It was a duck-billed dinosaur that had a flattened skull and bony crests positioned in front of its eyes. Its beak didn’t have any teeth, but this dinosaur did have cheek teeth—and many sharp ones at that.

Jack Horner named it because he saw evidence that it took good care of its babies, feeding them chewed up plants (yecch) while they were too weak as newly-hatched babies to leave the nest.

Other dinosaurs were probably good parents, too.
