Pachycephalosaurus

About Pachycephalosaurus

Pachycephalosaurus was discovered around 1939 by a Montana rancher named William Winkley. It is to date the largest Pachycephalosaurus, or bonehead dinosaur, ever discovered. The name bonehead comes from their thick skulls. Pachycephalosaurus' skull was over 10 inches thick. In many cases, only the thick part of these animals' heads have survived to today. Like other boneheads, Pachycephalosaurus had a dome-shaped head that may have been used in battle against rival members of its species, or to ram predators. Around this dome were several bump-like studs that were probably used to attract mates. Pachycephalosaurus had very small teeth that would have not been very useful for eating anything more than soft vegetation, such as leaves and fruits.
