The Parrosaurus Missouriensis is a type of duck-billed dinosaur, believed to have ranged between 25 to 30 feet long. Duck-billed dinosaurs were herbivores that lived during the Late Cretaceous period.

Following the discovery, the juvenile skeleton was transported to the Sainte Genevieve Museum Learning Center for further research and examination.

“I can’t imagine anything that’s more impressive than what we discovered here,” Darrough told Fox2Now. “A new genus in species. It’s [a] world-famous discovery.”
