About Styracosaurus

Living near the end of the age of the dinosaurs, Styrocosaurus is one of the most interesting of all the Ceratopsia, or horned dinosaurs. This well protected animal had a long sharp horn on the top of its head. It also had a number of other long sharp horns around its skull ridge. Styracosaurus was a plant-eater and would have spent its days looking for foliage and also looking out for enemies. If attacked, Styracosaurus could have inflicted great damage on a predator with its horns.
