Dracorex was a Pachycephlosaur that once lived in North America. Its name means 'dragon king' because of the crown-like bony forms on its dragon-like skull. The only species in the genus is 'Dracorex hogwartsia', named after the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling. There is some discussion as to whether Dracorex and the very similar Stygimoloch are actually earlier growth stages for the Pachycephalosaurus.
The only remains for Dracorex were discovered in the Hell Creek Formation in South Dakota. So far only a skull and some skeleton fragments have been recovered.
The Hell Creek Formation contains a wealth of dinosaur remains, including aquatic animals. It was a low floodplain and the rich soil supported a range of plants.
