Description

Torosaurus is notable for having one of the largest skulls the world has ever seen, measuring up to 2.7m in length. Fossil remains have shown that the frill on its skull contained two large holes, lending the genus its name, which translates to ‘perforated lizard’. Torosaurus is an herbivorous dinosaur and can weigh up to six tons, requiring a huge amount of vegetation every day for sustenance.

Discovery

The discovery of Torosaurus occurred in 1891, when two large skulls with perforated frills were unearthed in Wyoming by the so-called ‘king of collectors’, John Bell Hatcher. The holes established it as a separate genus from Triceratops, a similar dinosaur that had been discovered two years earlier, and renowned paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh named the new genus Torosaurus.

Paleoecology

Torosaurus dates back around 65-70m years to the Late Cretaceous period and lived in North America. Experts believe that the genus lived in herds and co-existed with its fellow ceratopsian Triceratops, Dracorex and Edmontosaurus, while steering clear of the apex predator, Tyrannosaurus.
