ABSTRACT The long bone histology of the “hypsilophodontid” dinosaurs Orodromeus makelai, Dryosaurus altus, and Tenontosaurus tilletti, was examined from perinate to largest available ontogenetic stages. These ontogenies were compared with each other, and to those of other dinosaurs, notably hadrosaurids such as Maiasaura and Hypacrosaurus. Orodromeus is a small dinosaur, and its more moderate growth trajectory is consistent with those generally observed for relatively small dinosaurs and… Expand
