Oryctodromeus


This small dinosaur weighted about 66 pounds ( 30  kg ) . It was the first known Ornithopod to be found with the adult, still inside the burrow , indicating that this family died together . It also means that adult Oryctodromeus cared for their young. Their arms and head show some adaption to digging but to the same extent that dedicated burrows do today..
