Pentaceratops is a relative of the more famous Triceratops, and bears a strong resemblance to its cousin – although, as the name (which translates to ‘five-horned face’) suggests, it has five horns instead of three. This genus can grow up to almost 7m in length and weighs in excess of five tons, and has an eye-catching frill protruding from the back of its skull that helps it to attract a mate.
Charles Hazelius Sternberg, an American fossil collector and paleontologist, lays claim to the discovery of Pentaceratops, having unearthed multiple fossils from the Kirtland Formation, New Mexico in 1921. Exploration of the area led to further findings, and Pentaceratops was officially classified as a new genus by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1923.
Pentaceratops existed during the Late Cretaceous period, around 75m years ago and lived on the vast plains of the western United States, feeding mainly on plants and shrubs. It lived alongside numerous other dinosaurs including Parasaurolophus and Edmontosaurus, and is unlikely to have had any predators once fully grown due to its large size.
