The Lost Files- Anatosaurus by HodariNundu The Lost Files- Anatosaurus by HodariNundu
JURASSIC PARK Los Archivos Perdidos
Anatosaurus
Epoca: Cretaceo tardio, hace 70-65 millones de años
Distribucion: Norteamerica
Longitud: 13 metros
Peso: 4.5 toneladas
Dieta: Herbivoro
El Anatosaurus es un enorme dinosaurio pico de pato, uno de los dinosaurios mas comunes en Jurassic Park. Ironicamente, tambien es de los menos vistos, pues en vez de frecuentar las areas abiertas como Parasaurolophus o Corythosaurus, prefiere merodear por zonas de selva espesa y pantanosa.
Por su enorme tamaño, el Anatosaurus esta a salvo de la mayoria de los depredadores pequeños, pero es una importante presa en el menu del T-Rex y otros grandes teropodos, asi que esta constantemente en alerta. Aunque no tiene cresta, tiene unas bolsas inflables en la zona de la nariz que usa para amplificar sus llamados, descritos como "una mezcla entre el sonido de un asno y el de un gran ave".
Los Anatosaurus pueden caminar en dos o en cuatro patas pero siempre corren sobre sus patas traseras, a una velocidad de hasta 57 kilometros por hora. Su tamaño, y su pesada cola, son sus principales armas. Incluso el T-Rex suele proceder con cuidado cuando caza a estos hadrosaurios, y generalmente busca a los debiles o enfermos de la manada. Se han dado casos en los que un Anatosaurus se defiende de un enemigo mordiendolo con su afilado pico.
Los Anatosaurus tienen excelentes sentidos de la vista y el olfato. Machos y hembras son similares pero los machos son mucho mas grandes y tienen llamados mas profundos. Como todos los hadrosaurios, son muy protectores de sus crias.
Un guardabosques de Jurassic Park comentó que "como grupo, los hadrosaurios son los dinosaurios mas pacificos. No obstante, su tamaño es colosal, y es mejor no acercarse demasiado si no se quiere acabar aplastado... o sordo".
TRIVIA: Casi al mismo tiempo que los cientificos de Jurassic Park clonaron a sus primeros Anatosaurus, los paleontologos decidieron que este nombre era invalido y lo reemplazaron por "Edmontosaurus".
INOFENSIVO SI NO SE LE PROVOCA

JURASSIC PARK The Lost Files
Anatosaurus
Age: Late Cretaceous, 70-65 mya
Range: North America
Length: 13 meters
Weight: 4.5 tons
Diet: Herbivore
Anatosaurus is a huge duckbilled dinosaur, one of the most common in Jurassic Park. Ironically, it is seldom seen, for it roams swampy, dense jungle areas instead of open zones like Corythosaurus or Parasaurolophus. Because of its huge size, Anatosaurus is safe from most small predators, but it is an important food item in the menu of T-Rex and other large theropods, so it has to be constantly alert. It doesn´t have a crest, but it amplifies its calls with inflatable sacs on its snout area. Its call has been described as "a mixture between a donkey's sound and the cry of a very large bird".
Anatosaurus can walk on all fours or two legs, but they always run on their hindlegs, reaching speeds of up to 57 kms p/h. Their size and heavy tail are their main defenses. Even T-Rex proceeds with caution when hunting these hadrosaurs, and usually seeks the weak or sick individuals. There have been reports of Anatosaurus that defended themselves from a predator by biting with their sharp beak.
Anatosaurus has excellent senses of sight and smell. Males and females are similar but males are much larger and have deeper calls. As all hadrosaurs, they are very protective of their young.
A Jurassic Park ranger commented that "as a group, hadrosaurs are the most peaceful of all dinosaurs. However, their size is extraordinary and it is better to stay away from them in order to avoid ending up trampled... or deaf".
TRIVIA: Almost at the same time that the Jurassic Park scientists cloned their first Anatosaurus, paleontologists decided that this name was invalid and replaced it with "Edmontosaurus".
HARMLESS UNLESS PROVOKED

Hang on! Anatosaurus is a junior synonym of Edmontosaurus, but there were specimens that were different enough to have their own name; Anatotitan.
