FOSSILIZED SKULL of the Parasaurolophus (top) was discovered in August 1995 by a team headed by Thomas E. Williamson of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. The fossil was unearthed near Farmington in northwest New Mexico on public land administered by the Bureau of Land Management. The length of the crest is about five feet.

THE SKULL AND CREST are among the most complete specimens of Parasaurolophus ever found. Missing sections are indicated in white (bottom).
