The Edmontosaur is a well known member of the Hadrosaur (Duck-bill dinosaur) family. The diamond shape teeth of Edmontosaurs developed in groups called dental batteries. These sharp teeth helped the dinosaur consume the fibrous plant materials that made up its diet. As teeth in the battery wore down, they fell out and were replaced by others.
