ATLANTApix: Lophorhothon atopus

A family of Lophorhothon atopus greet visitors to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History. The Lophorhothon dinosaurs romed the Southeast and Georgia during the Crusteateous Period, 65-114 million years ago.

The adult Lophorhothon, members of the Hadrosaur family, grew up to 35 feet long and weighed 3-4 tons. 

The entrance plaza, home of three bronze Lophorhothons, is a mere glimpse of the (pre)historic wonders that await visitors inside.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
