     Edmontosaurus annectens is a duck-billed dinosaur that travelled normally on four legs but could walk on two legs for short distances.  It was a herbivore with a beak and teeth in batteries further back in the mouth.  Their teeth were complex composed of six types of tissues. [1]  They grew to about 42 feet long and 10 feet tall at their hips. [2] Fossilized imprints of Edmontosaurus mummified skin were recovered in Wyoming showing the various scale patterns on different parts of their extremities. 

               

    Edmontosaurus annectens fossils have been found in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana, the Lance Creek Formation of South Dakota and Wyoming, USA and the Frenchman Formation of Saskatchewan, Canada.  [3]
