Montanoceratops

About Montanoceratops

Montanoceratops was discovered in Montana by Barnum Brown, and was named Montanoceratops in 1951 by Charles M. Sternberg. Since that time additional fossils have also been discovered in Alberta, Canada, suggesting that Montanoceratops roamed a wide territory. Montanoceratops' hind legs were much longer than its front legs, giving this animal a sort of hunched over look. Like many ceratopsian, or horned dinosaurs, Montanoceratops had a short tail. In addition, Montanoceratops had the common head frill, and a single horn.
