Lambeosaurs are a species of hardrosaur that lives in large herds.

A lambeosaur is a very large animal, smaller than its relative the anatotitan, but still averaging over 30 feet long. It still is a common prey item for many carnivorous dinosaurs, but lambeosaurs live in large herds to protect themselves from danger. Each herd has a distant relationship with other nearby herds, and their crests act as powerful amplifiers for their hooting cries. The distress calls of a lambeosaur can be heard from almost a mile away, and if a distress call is given, other herds in earshot flee as rapidly as possible.

Lambeosaurs shy away from combat unless they or their offspring are threatened. If so, they fight using their powerful tails.
