Fukuisaurus tetoriensis Ornithischia Ornithopoda

Skeleton of Fukuisaurus
This herbivorous dinosaur, belonging to Iguanodontia, was discovered by the dinosaur excavation project in Katsuyama, Fukui Prefecture. This species was described based on relatively well-preserved skull material in 2003. Although the tooth shape resembles that of a Mongolian iguanodontian Altirhinus, the absence of pleurokinesis in Fukuisaurus is unique.
