Named By: Y. L. Bolotsky & P. Godefroit - 2004.
Classification: Chordata, Reptilia, Dinosauria, Ornithischia, Ornithopoda, Hadrosauridae, Saurolophinae.
Species: K. manakini (type).
Size: Uncertain due to lack of fossil remains, but estimates range about 8 meters total body length.
Known locations: Russia, Amur Region - Tsagayan Formation.
Time period: Maastrichtian of the Cretaceous.
Fossil representation: Partial skull.
Because of a current lack of fossils for this genus, the only thing that can be said with any certainty is that Kerberosaurus was a saurolophine hadrosaurid, the group of hadrosaurs noted to have solid head crests like those of Saurolophus. The skull remains of Kerberosaurus were discovered in a bone bed of other Mesozoic animals including the lambeosaurine hadrosaurid Amurosaurus, though as a saurolophine hadrosaurid, Kerberosaurus would have been a distantly related but similar hadrosaur as Amurosaurus (lambeosaurine hadrosaurids like Amurosaurus are so named because they have hollow head crests similar to that of the groups type genus Lambeosaurus).
