Muttaburrasaurus was a large herbivorous dinosaur that would have measured up to seven metres in length. Although predominantly bipedal, the creature was also capable of walking on all four legs.
Muttaburrasaurus had an unusual skull with a large, bulbous, hollow chambered snout that is believed to have amplified the volume of its call.
