Giant plant-eating dinosaurs may have been champion chewers up there with the likes of mammals such as horses, bison or elephants, researchers say.

The finding could help explain why these behemoths dominated the plains of Europe, Asia and North America during the last part of the age of dinosaurs, scientists added.

Duck-billed herbivores called hadrosaurids thundered across the world during the Late Cretaceous period, dating about 65 million to 100 million years ago. They grazed on horsetails, ferns and primitive flowering plantson the ground, and browsed on Earth's conifers.

If they are big they would have to be good at chewing in order to consume enough food for their size.

That could be right..Hadrosaurids skull have slight appearance like some cattle's skull and also it is bigger.They say that an animal which chews will be having big head.Hadrosaurids do have big heads.
