In Wild World
"This dinosaur lived until the very end of ALL dinosaur-kind, you know. The magnificent crest on its head was actually hollow bone measuring over 3 feet! BA-ROOOOOOOOOOOO! A mighty cry would echo across the land when it tooted it! Ah. Hoo. Did I spit on you? I rarely get to cut loose like that, wot? I'm an owl."
In City Folk
"The parasaurolophus lived until the end of the days of the dinosaurs! The crest on its head was a hollow bone over three feet in length. This beast could toot its own horn, wot! The very thought of the sound it might have made ruffles all of my feathers!"
In New Leaf
"The parasaur is well known for the distinctive head crest extending from its nose to behind its head. The crest was formed from a hollow bone that was more than a yard in length. Theories hold that it was used to amplify the creature's vocalizations for a variety of reasons."
In New Horizons
"Hootie-hoo, Parasaurolophus! I like to think of it as the beast with the golden tones. You see, the three-foot structure of hollow bone atop its head MAY have been an elaborate noisemaker! As a dyed-in-the-feathers optimist AND music fan, I like to think it serenaded the late Cretaceous!"
In Real Life
Parasaurolophus was an herbivorous ornithopod dinosaur. It lived 76-73 million years ago in North America and possibly Asia. While no complete skeletons have been found, it is estimated to reach about 9.5 meters long and weigh 2.5 metric tonnes. It is best known for its crest, which evolved from the premaxilla and nasal bones and contained a hollow tube extending from the nostrils before turning around and heading back into the skull. Hypotheses for the purpose of the crest include sexual display, communication, and thermoregulation.
