During the Cretaceous Period, hadrosaurs or duck-billed dinosaurs served as a staple in the diets of several carnivores such as raptors and Tyrannosaurs. While writing The Kaligen Experiment, I decided to create a dinosaur that served the same role as the hadrosaurs of old. Like the other dinosaurs in the series, this herbivore is a fictional species of my own design. I envisioned it to have the head of Edmontosaurus, the head crest of Saurolophus, the nasal crest from the unused Malusaurus from Jurassic World, the thumb spikes of Iguanodon, and the back sail of Ouranosaurus. In order to symbolize its status as a new species of hadrosaur, this creature’s name translates as “New Duck”.
