Ouranosaurus is a two ton herbivorious orinthopod/iguanadont that lived in Africa during the early cretaceous period, like Spinosaurus



Ouranosaurus was a little bit like Dimetrodon,  Edaphosaurus  Spinosaurus because it also had a sail on its back. It  probably used its sail for the same reasons too. Although they might look a lot like duckbill dinosaurs like Parasaurolophus and Corythosaurus,  they are actually iguanadonts. It was 23 feet long and was preyed on by Carchardontosaurus and sometimes, during the dry season Spinosaurus.


They were shown as herd animals, in planet dinosaur, like modern bison. They are also known as, the bulls of the Late Cretaceous Africa. Ouranosaurus was an animal that lived in herds and also probably took care of its young. They were very careful, so if a Spinosaurus appeared, alhough they are not on its menu, they would still run away from it.
