Heterodontosaurus



dinosaur picture heterodontosaurus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Family Heterodontosauridae
  Genus Heterodontosaurus
Heterodontosaurus was a small herbivore (plant-eater), only 3 feet (90 centimeters) long. It lived in the early Jurassic period, in South Africa, roughly 205 million years ago.

Its name (which means "varied toothed lizard") stems from its three kinds of teeth. Its teeth are unusual because reptiles and dinosaurs usually only have a single kind of teeth. At the frront of Heterodontosaurus' jaw were small teeth using for chopping leaves and other plant fibers, these were followed by large tusks which may jhave been used for sexual displays, and at the back of the jaw were tall square teeth which were adapted for chewing. An additional adaption for chewing was cheeks: Heterodontosaurus was also one of the first kinds of dinosaurs to have developed cheeks to keep the food in its mouth.

Heterodontosaurus' hands were also interesting. Each hand contained five fingers, two of which were opposable "thumbs" allowing the creature to grasp its food.

  • TERRIBLE PIG: Daeodon was an entelodont – a group of prehistoric hoofed mammals that resembled pigs. In fact, Daeodon was once known as “Dinohyus” which means “Terrible Pig”. Daeodons had huge heads that could measure up to three feet long, and they were omnivores, which means they ate plants and other animals.
  • INTERESTING DISCOVERY: Daeodon was discovered in 1878 by paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope, but was not classified as an entelodont until some 30 years later. Many other genera, including Dinohyus, would later be folded into the Daeodon genus.

Its mane, hooves and tail tip are dark brown, and its color fades from brown above to a lighter brown below. Its chin is white, and its fearsome teeth are off-white in its open pink mouth.
