Arctic Edmontosaurus Lives Again – Perot Museum Paleontologists Give A New Look at the "Caribou of the Cretaceous"

DALLAS (May 6, 2020) – A new study by an international team from the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Hokkaido University and Okayama University of Science in Japan further explores the proliferation of the most commonly occurring duck-billed dinosaur of the ancient Arctic as the genus Edmontosaurus. The findings also reinforce that the hadrosaurs – known as the “caribou of the Cretaceous” – had a huge geographical distribution of approximately 60 degrees of latitude, spanning the North American West from Alaska to Colorado.
