Charonosaurus (C. jiayinensis, "Reptile of Charon") is an extinct genus of hadrosaurid ornithopod dinosaur, which lived at the end of the Late Cretaceous period, between approximately 69.9 to 66 million years ago, during the Maastrichtian, in what is today Asia.

Charonosaurus was a large dinosaur, with an estimated length of 10 meters. It was a sauropod with a relatively small skull and knife-shaped teeth for cutting through the tough plants that made up its diet.

The fossil remains of Charonosaurus include several partial skeletons and bone fragments, which has allowed paleontologists to reconstruct much of its anatomy. Charonosaurus is believed to have had a long, thick tail, and to have walked on four stout, columnar legs.

Although it is not known for certain whether Charonosaurus was an aquatic or terrestrial animal, some studies have suggested that its hind legs were strong enough to support its weight in water.

It has also been proposed that Charonosaurus could have used its long neck to reach aquatic vegetation while submerged.

The Model Pose represents a specimen of Charonosaurus stampeding from the herd due to the harassment of predators.

Approximate measurements of the Charonosaurus:

1:72 scale - 136 mm long
1:35 scale - 275 mm long
