Styracosaurus skull RUGM

Styracosaurus skull in the Rutgers Geology Museum

is a Ceratopsian Dinosaur of the Late Cretaceous. It lived in what was now Canada 76 million years ago.

Its most obvious feature was its large head, which possessed long horns on the neck frill and nose. The horns on the frill may have been used for purposes of intimidation or display.

Styracosaurus was part of the Centrosaurinae group, members of which have often been found in large bonebeds containing hundreds, sometimes even thousands, of individuals. It has been suggested that all centrosaurines are just one species, variations in the skull due to the age of the animal.
