Description

Sinoceratops was a ceratopsid dinosaur. Its name means “Chinese horned face”. It is significant as the first known ceratopsid found outside of North America.It had a short hooked horn on its nose, no horns above its eyes, and a short neck frill, with a crown-like appearance formed by forward-curving hornlets.

Discovery

Three specimens of Sinoceratops have been found in the Xingezhuang Formation in Shandong, China, with the first discovered in 2008.

Paleoecology

Sinoceratops was discovered in the same formation as the ornithopods Shantungosaurus and Huaxiaosaurus, and the theropod Zhuchengtyrannus, showing species parallels with ecosystems and food chains in North America around the same time.
