Eolambia was a genus of herbivorous hadrosauroid dinosaurs that lived in the Late Cretaceous of the United States. It was a large dinosaur that was closely related to the duck-billed hadrosaurs. In 1993, it was discovered by Carole and Ramal Jones and named by paleontologist James Kirkland in 1998. 

Eolambia was a herbivorous dinosaur that fed on gymnosperms, ferns and flowering plants. It lived in a forested environment at the edge of lakes in a humid floodplain environment along with armored dinosaurs such as Peloroplites and Animantarx, other ornithopod dinosaurs such as Tenontosaurus and Zephyrosaurus, as well as sauropods such as Abydosaurus. Like other hadrosaurs, it could walk on two or four legs and reproduced by laying eggs. 

Eolambia was estimated to be about 6 m long and weighed about 1,000 kg.
