Artwork of hypacrosaurus & “Laura the kid dinosaur”

Eastern Iowa Paleontology Project

“Bringing DINOSAURS to Iowa”

Roby Braun of Cycad Productions Ltd. used Photoshop to create this picture – a composite of a photo of Roby’s sculpture of “Laura the Kid Dinosaur” and a photo from his vacation to Indian Canyon in California.

This drawing by EIPP President Don Johnson shows “Laura the Juvenile Hypacrosaurus” being attacked by a group of Bambiraptors, small raptor dinosaurs that lived at the same time as Hypacrosaurus.


This colored drawing by EIPP President Don Johnson shows a comparison of body size for Hypacrosaurus stebingeri – a nestling on the left, “Laura the Kid Dinosaur” in the middle, and an adult on the right.  Hypacrosaurus reached full adult size after 10 years, Laura is estimated at 4 years of age, and the nestling several months old.

“Dawn at the Rookery” (1990) by paleoartist Mark Hallett shows a mother tending to her nestlings at a Hypacrosaurus stebingeri nesting ground.  To learn more about Mark’s artwork, visit his web site at  Copyrighted image used with permission.
