Description

Styracosaurus was a large ceratopsian dinosaur with distinctive horns protruding from its neck frill. It lived in what is now North America, and its name means 'spike lizard'. They are believed to have lived in herds, and travelled in large groups for protection and foraging for food. Its tough beak and shearing cheek teeth would have been ideal for slicing up plant matter.

Discovery

The first Styracosaurus remains originated from the Dinosaur Park Formation in Alberta, Canada in 1913. Other species of Styracosaurus have since been found in other locations like the Two Medicine Formation in Montana.

Paleoecology

Styracosaurus lived in a region of rivers and floodplains. These became more swamp-like as the Western Interior Sea encroached deeper inland. Its seasons were wetter and drier than the modern equivalent, and there was plentiful plant life including conifers.
