So I went to the American Museum of Natural History today and I figured I'd be too good at identifying the dinosaurs. Well this one is giving me some trouble. Any guesses?

Can't see it well enough to offer a guess, sorry. :{

Probably Kritosaurus. I'm pretty sure every one of those display cases is labeled, though. They were last time I went through that museum.

Iguanodon or Mantellisaurus or something similar from the looks of it.

I completely agree! My first thought was an iguanadon, but Kritosaurus is similar as well. Definitely a hadrosaur though...

Doesn't look like a hadrosaur exactly, but definitely some kind of iguanodontian. If it's Kritosaurus it's either a really weird reconstruction or a very warped specimen: Even the out-dated, flat-snouted version here is a much less rectangular-skulled beast than the above.

Might be one of the less neotenic-looking versions of Camptosaurus, just going on this here?. Need to get an ornithopod expert on this, lol.

I see what you mean about the Kritosaurus... Camptosaurus... possibly? Maybe this guy just had a weird nose. :)

Yeah sorry about the camera. It isn't the best. I have a picture of Camptosaurus's skeleton from the museum. I know the display cases were labeled but I thought I was smart enough to identify the dinosaurs myself. I thought it was Iguanadon as well.
