Camptosaurus was a fast two legged dinosaur who could run at speeds up to 16 mph. It relied on its speed to get away from predators. It was eaten by the Torvosaurus. The Camptosaurus most likely lived in small groups. The front of its skull was beak-like and had no teeth. They used their beak-like skull to nip vegetation. Their ancestors were other later herbivors like the iguanodonts and duck bills. Camptosaurus are found in the Morrison Formation.
