Description

Notable for its distinctive flat skull (its name translates to ‘even head’), Homalocephale is a small, herbivorous dinosaur that grows to around 2.3m in length and around 45kg in weight. This genus has excellent eyesight and long legs that help it to locate and escape predators, while its thick, flat skull and wide pelvis protect it from attack.

Discovery

Homalocephale was first classified as a new genus in 1974 by Polish paleontologists Halszka Osmólska and Teresa Maryańska, based on a small number of fossils, including a partial skull, found in Mongolia. Many paleontologists believed the bones were actually from a juvenile Prenocephale, rather than a genus in its own right.

Paleoecology

Homalocephale lived during the Late Cretaceous period around 68-72m years ago, roaming the forested areas of Mongolia in search of vegetation at ground level. These densely wooded areas may also have helped Homalocephale to hide from larger carnivores that shared this environment.
