Another jawesome reported from Jaustralia: Fleshy comb discovered on duck-billed dinosaur.

The finding provides further insight into the evolution of head crests and behaviour in hadrosaurs, commonly known as duck-billed dinosaurs.

The fleshy comb in Edmontosaurus would not have been capable of making sound, leading the researchers to think it was for display.

“If we compare that to other animals today that have a similar type of crest then these things were probably brightly coloured, and would have been used to show off how attractive a male was and perhaps who was head of the herd,” Dr Bell said.

Happy not-quite-Friday!
