Muttaburrasaurus adohomo (name meaning "Muttaburra (Australian site) lizard created by man") is a species of large herbivorous bipedal ornithopod dinosaur, which originally lived in what is now northeastern Australia sometime between 112 and 99.6 million years ago during the early Cretaceous Period, and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and now lives in the Cretaceous Safari tour in Cretaceous Park located at Sacramento, California. It has been recovered in some analyses as a member of the iguanodontian family Rhabdodontidae. Muttaburrasaurus adohomo is normally about 8 metres (26 feet) when fully grown and weigh around 2.8 metric tons (3.1 short tons). It is a herbivore and mainly feeds on fruits, leaves, nuts, cycads, ferns, and horsetails. The skull of Muttaburrasaurus adohomo is rather flat, with a triangular cross-section when seen from above; the back of the head is broad but the snout pointed. The snout includes a strongly enlarged, hollow, upward-bulging nasal muzzle that is used to produce distinctive calls or, during mating seasons, for display purposes.
