MONOCLONIUS
Pronunciation: mon-uh-CLO-nee-us  
Translation: Single Stem, or One Horned
Also Known As:
Description: Herbivore,y Quadrupedal
Order: Ornithischia
Suborder: Marginocephalia
Infraorder: Ceratopsia
Micro-order Neoceratopsia
Family: Ceratopsidae
Height: 9 feet (2.7 meters)
Length: Total 20 feet (6.1 meters)
Head: 6 feet (1.8 meters)
Weight: Period: Late Cretaceous


Notes: Found in Alberta, Canada and in Montana, Monoclonius had a massive head with a large nose spike.


MONONYKUS
Pronunciation: mo-NON-ih-kus  
Translation: One Claw
Also Known As:
Description: Carnivore, Bipedal
Order: Saurischia
Suborder: Theropoda
Infraorder: Tetanurae
Micro-order: Maniraptora (of the microorder Coelurosauria)
Family:
Height: 3.5 feet (1.1meters)
Length: 5 feet (1.5meters)
Weight:
Period: Late Cretaceous


Notes: Mononykus is known from fragmentary remains discovered in Mongolia. It had a large but short forelimb with a single claw. While not capable of flight, Mononychus may be more closely related to modern-day birds than is Archaeopteryx.


MONTANOCERATOPS
Pronunciation: mon-TAN-uh-SAIR-uh-tops  
Translation: Horned Face of Montana
Also Known As:
Description: Herbivore, Quadrupedal
Order: Ornithischia
Suborder: Marginocephalia
Infraorder: Ceratopsia
Micro-order Neoceratopsia
Family: Protoceratopsidae
Height: 2.5 feet (0.8 meters)
Length: 6 feet (1.8 meters)
Weight:
Period: Late Cretaceous


Notes: Found in Montana, Montanaceratops is known for its parrot-like beak and prominent nose horn. It is perhaps the most well-developed protoceratopsian.


MUSSAURUS
Pronunciation: moose-SAWR-us  
Translation: Mouse Lizard
Also Known As:
Description: Herbivore, Quadrupedal
Order: Saurischia
Suborder: Sauropodomorpha
Infraorder: Prosauropoda
Family: Plateosauridae
Height: 10 feet (3 meters)
Length: 26 feet (7.9 meters)
Weight: 4,000 pounds (1,814 kg)
Period: Late Triassic


Notes: With the discovery in southern Argentina of adults and young hatchlings, Mussaurus is the earliest known dinosaur baby and the eggshells represent the oldest known dinosaur eggs. While no whole eggs have been discovered, only eggshells in the vicinity of the Mussaurus hatchlings, the eggshells are presumed to belong to Mussaurus. A plateosaurid prosauropod like Coloradisaurus, they represent the only South American prosauropods; other South American prosauropods are all members of Melanorosauride.


MUTTABURRASAURUS
Pronunciation: mut-tah-BUR-rah-SAWR-us  
Translation: Muttaburra Lizard
Also Known As:
Description:
Herbivore, Bipedal ,semi Quadrupedal
Order: Ornithischia
Suborder: Ornithopoda
Infraorder: Iguanodontia
Family: Iguanodoutidae
Height: 15 feet (4.6 meters)
Length: 23 feet (7 meters)
Weight:
Period: Early Cretaceous


Notes: Found in Australia, Muttaburrasaurus had a broad low-head and hoof-like hands with a large flattened thumb spike. Its teeth may have worked like shears, unlike those of other iguanodontids, and some take this shearing ability to mean that Muttaburrasaurus may have been partially carnivorous.
