Lambeosaurus & The Number One Naming Taboo

Lambeosaurus was named by William Parks (a famous Canadian scientist who has his own dinosaur named after him, Parksosaurus) after Lawrence Lambe, the man who originally discovered the dinosaur.

The rule of thumb in palaeontology is you can name a dinosaur after just about anything you want, except yourself. Someone else has to do that for you!

A mounted Lambeosaurus at the Royal Ontario Museum.  Lambeosaurus is a type of hadrosaurid dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period (~75 million years ago) in North America.  This bipedal/quadrupedal, plant-eating dinosaur is known for its distinctive hollow cranial crest, which in the best-known species resembled a hatchet.  The most widely excepted theory about it’s hollow crest is that is aided in social noise making, amplifying sounds.
