Ouranosaurus was an iguanodont dinosaur that lived during the Early Cretaceous period in Cretaceous Africa. Its name means "brave lizard" and had a hump similar to that of camels. Ouranosaurus lived in Africa during the Cretaceous period, alongside with predators like Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus, which Ouranosaurus was their common prey.

Jurassic Park: Operation GenesisEdit

see Ouranosaurus/Operation Genesis

Ouranosaurus was featured as a two star large herbivore in Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, and they serve as the main prey for Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus. They also seem to be friends with Edmontosaurus, even though the two dinosaurs lived on two totally different continents. However being a distant cousin to the later Ornithopod, this would be considered accurate.
