Live Fast and Die Young by Julio-Lacerda Live Fast and Die Young by Julio-Lacerda
"Go chase a butterfly or something!" yells the bull Edmontosaurus in its hadrosaurian language, wich to us would sound somewhat like "HONK!". The reckless (still?) feathered tyrannosaurus might be calling momma, depending on your beliefs about tyrannosaur social behaviour.

Consider this part of the campaign to raise awareness for the underestimated power or big herbivores.

This makes perfect sense! I'm getting really tired of the scene of tyrannosaurs constantly overwhelming hadrosaurus, as if the latter's only purpose was to be food. No way! Hadrosaurs, as I know, were extremely successful animals and they got REALLY big, nearly as large as T.rex itself. And besides, if survival is on the line animals will do things we don't expect.

I've recently hypothesized that, if being harassed by a big predator, adult Hadrosaurs could and would fight back with sheer brute force. Sure they didn't have horns or armor, but they had to make use of all that bulk somehow!

We need more things with ornithopods being more than theropod cannon fodder.

Nice image, and yes, we need mnore images that explain why big ornithopods was so succesful, not only beefs with duckbill;)
The tiny Tyrannosaurus looks very good in their feathered coverage.

You can never have too many depictions of butt-kicking hadrosaurs. They are long overdue.
