Maiasaura
by: Adrian M., Grade: 6+


The Maiasaura ate different kinds of plants. They weighed 2-4 tons and they were 23-30 feet long. They lived about 75-80 million years ago. Their name meant good mother lizard. They didn't really have a habitat,they migrated over the seasons. It was a duck billed dinosaur and was pretty big. Their life span was when they got eaten or when they grew old. The hatchlings were completely dependent on their mothers, they had very large guts, and young may have reached adult size in 5 years or less.
