Vertical plates ran along the center of the arched back and two spikes occur on the tail. The plates may have been arranged in two rows. The snout was long and pointed. Why? Answer: To snip off leaves.

We hope you enjoyed this visit to a real dinosaur quarry. It's time to end our virtual field trip and fly away home. Dr. Keating visited several other museums and quarries, while working in the western United States. If you'd like to see more dinosaur sites in the Dinosaur Triangle of Utah and Colorado, and in Canada and Alaska, visited in the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology portion of the SOEST Web Site, send a message via email to Barbara Keating at firstname.lastname@example.org.
