The dinosaur got the name Gobihadros mongoliensis. It belongs to hadrosauridae — clade, including the family of hadrosaurs, the “duckbilled” dinosaurs and their closest relatives.

The oldest known representatives of this clade, lived about 125 million years ago; it is assumed that initially hadrosaurid lived on the territory of modern Asia, and then migrated to other continents.

Gobihadros mongoliensis, named after its place of discovery (the Gobi desert is in Mongolia), a length of approximately three meters and walked on four legs.
