The Lost Files- Corythosaurus by HodariNundu The Lost Files- Corythosaurus by HodariNundu
JURASSIC PARK Los Archivos Perdidos
Corythosaurus
Epoca: Cretaceo tardio, hace 75 millones de años
Distribucion: Norteamerica
Longitud: 10 metros
Peso: Hasta 4 toneladas
Dieta: Herbivoro
Corythosaurus es un dinosaurio pico de pato emparentado con el Parasaurolophus, pero puede ser facilmente distinguido por su cresta aplanada lateralmente y con forma de plato. Esta cresta es mas grande y redonda en los machos, y tiene un color mucho mas vistoso.
El Corythosaurus es, como el Parasaurolophus, un animal pacifico y asustadizo; en caso de peligro suele huir corriendo sobre sus patas traseras; en caso de ser acorralado, no obstante, su gran tamaño y su poderosa cola y patas traseras pueden ser armas muy peligrosas para un atacante mas pequeño que el.
Los Corythosaurus a menudo se asocian con manadas de otras especies de hadrosaurios, como el Parasaurolophus. Tienen sentidos muy desarrollados, en especial la vista y el olfato, y aunque suelen pastar en cuatro patas, a menudo se levantan sobre las traseras para observar los alrededores. Aunque pueden nadar si es necesario, no es verdad que huyan al agua cuando los persigue un depredador.
Los Corythosaurus ponen unos quince huevos en un nido en forma de crater, y ambos padres cuidan a los jovenes cuando estos nacen. Los Corythosaurus jovenes tienen una coloracion criptica de rayas longitudinales para ocultarse en la vegetacion. Casi no hay agresividad entre los Corythosaurus.
Los llamados de este animal son muy parecidos, aunque menos variados, a los de Parasaurolophus, y sus vocalizaciones son generalmente mas breves. Su sonido mas caracteristico es un grito corto que emiten cuando estan asustados o cuando intentan alertar a otros de una posible amenaza.
TRIVIA: Las manadas de Corythosaurus suelen huir en estampida cuando se les ataca; esto es una forma de defensa, pues evita que los depredadores puedan elegir una unica presa. En muchas ocasiones, los carnivoros incluyendo a los mayores como el Tyrannosaurus suelen abandonar la caza en vez de arriesgarse a ser pisoteados.
INOFENSIVO SI NO SE LE PROVOCA

JURASSIC PARK The Lost Files
Corythosaurus
Age: Late Cretaceous, 75 mya
Range: North America
Length: 10 meters
Weight: Up to 4 tons
Diet: Herbivore
Corythosaurus is a duckbilled dinosaur, related to Parasaurolophus but easily recognized because of its laterally flattened, plate shaped crest. This crest is larger and rounder in males, and also much more colorful than in females.
Corythosaurus is, like Parasaurolophus, a peaceful and easily scared animal. When facing danger it usually flees running quickly on its hind legs; if cornered, however, its great size and powerful tail and legs can be very dangerous weapons against smaller predators.
Corythosaurus often join herds of other duckbilled dinosaurs such as Parasaurolophus. They have very acute senses, specially eyesight and smell, and although they usually graze on all fours, they often stand on their hind legs to observe their surroundings. They can swim but it is not true that they flee to the water when attacked by a predator.
Corythosaurus females lay about fifteen eggs in a crater-shaped nest and both parents take care of the young. Infant Corythosaurus have a cryptic coloration with stripes to hide in low vegetation. Aggressivity is almost non existant among Corythosaurus.
This animals produces calls that are very similar, although less diverse, than those of Parasaurolophus. They are usually shorter, too. Their most typical call is a short yelp when they are scared or trying to tell other Corythosaurus about a potential threat.
TRIVIA: Corythosaurus herds often go on stampedes when attacked; this is a deffensive strategy, for it prevents predators from picking one single prey. Often, meat eaters, including larger ones such as Tyrannosaurus, abandon the hunt instead of risking theirselves to be trampled.

Corinthian-helmeted lizard :D

After some Greek helmets that had "crests" on the top.
