North American examples were about 30 feet (9.1 meters) long, whereas in Asia, it grew up to 39 feet (11.9 meters).
Like other duckbilled dinosaurs, Saurolophus is believed to have lived in herds. The crest on its head was hollow, and connected to the nasal passages, and thus could have been used to make sounds. Saurolophus could use these sounds to communicate within its herds, for example to warn of approaching predators.
Saurolophus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived from 74 to 70 million years ago
