Pachycephalosaurus was a pachycephalosaur (or thick-headed dinosaur) that lived in North America. It was one of the last non-avian dinosaurs before the Cretaceous-paleogene extinction event about 65 million years ago. It is distinctive for the reinforced dome of its skull, leading to speculation that they used to fight each other by head-butting. This has more recently been countered with the suggestion of flank-butting.
Pachycephalosaurus fossils may have been discovered in 1850 in the Lance Formation in south-eastern Montana. Early finds were fragmentary, but more complete specimens have recently been recovered.
Pachycephalosaurus lived on what were floodplains. Its sharp separated teeth would have made it ideal for a mixed-plants diet, and capable of shredding leaves.
