    Below is a sampling of herbivorous dinosaurs of the Cretaceous Period as presented at "The Dinosaur Place", a park in Montville, Connecticut, USA devoted to life-sized interpretations of dinosaurs.   Since the dinosaur reconstructions are based on fossil evidence, much interpretation is required before a life-like figure is constructed.   The fossil evidence usually includes bones and teeth.   Skin, internal organs, and outer appearance are usually missing.   Existing reptiles are often used as a guide.   The Dinosaur Place has used some interesting color schemes for some of their interpretations.  We have also included fossil evidence as displayed at the Amherst College Museum of Natural History, Amherst, Massachusetts, USA.
 


Interpretation of Protoceratops, a relatively slow-moving, herbivorous reptile of the Late Cretaceous Period.   It is estimated that these dinosaurs stood about 3 feet tall, had a length of 6-8.2 feet 1.5-2.5 meters, and weighed about 900 pounds (400 kg).   Exhibit at "The Dinosaur Place", Montville, Connecticut, USA.   Photo by Flo Bruehl September 30, 2006.


Interpretation of Parasaurolophus, a herbivorous "duck-billed" reptile of the Late Cretaceous Period.   It is estimated that these dinosaurs had a length of about 40 feet (12 meters), and weighed about 2 tons (1,800 kg).   It is depicted with a nest and eggs.   Exhibit at "The Dinosaur Place", Montville, Connecticut, USA.

Interpretation of Styracosaurus, a herbivorous reptile of the Late Cretaceous Period.   It is estimated that these dinosaurs had a length of about 18 feet (5 meters), were about 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall, and weighed up to 3 tons (2,700 kg).   It was a ornithischian ("bird-hipped") dinosaur.   Exhibit at "The Dinosaur Place", Montville, Connecticut, USA.   Photo by Flo Bruehl September 30, 2006.


Interpretation of Euoplocephalous, a herbivorous reptile of the Late Cretaceous Period.   It is estimated that these dinosaurs had a length of about 20 feet (6 meters), and weighed about 2 tons (1,800 kg).   It was a heavily armored dinosaur.   Exhibit at "The Dinosaur Place", Montville, Connecticut, USA.   Photo by Flo Bruehl September 30, 2006.
