Muttaburrasaurus langdoni is a large-bodied ornithopod from the Cretaceous period that lived 105 to 100 million years ago.
The snout of this species was unusually large and rounded. This feature may have either helped it regulate its temperature or produce long-range calls.
Muttaburrasaurus langdoni possessed a complex and tightly packed row of teeth called a tooth battery that helped it eat tough vegetation.
