Description

This is a fine fleshed-out model from the abundant species Protoceratops. There are about 80 skulls from this species, some skeletons juvenile to adult. Protoceratops (first horned face) was discovered by an American expedition to Mongolia in the early 1920s. The numerous skeletons belonged to four- legged plant-eaters with outsize heads, bony neck frills, sharp, shearing cheek teeth, and parrot- like beaks. Re-examining some of the dozens of Protoceratops fossil skulls, from hatchlings to old individuals led a Russian scientist in 1990 to re-identify two as belonging to a new genus Breviceratops, Protoceratops (and Breviceratops retain premaxillary teeth all other neoceratopians have lost them.
