In Praise of the Papo Pachyrhinosaurus Dinosaur Model It was sad to hear that the excellent Papo Pachyrhinosaurus dinosaur model was being retired by the French model and figure manufacturer. This horned dinosaur replica is now out of production and dinosaur fans and collectors will find the Pachyrhinosaurus more and more difficult to find in
Ancient dinosaurs were adorned in some amazing ways, from the horns of the triceratops to the plates and spikes of the stegosaurus. A newly discovered, bird-like dinosaur fossil from China contains evidence that could add a new accessory to the list: a shaggy ruff of rainbow feathers.

Only one skeleton has ever been found. Set four years after the disastrous events of Jurassic World, next year’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will introduce us to a handful of dinosaurs that we have not yet seen within the franchise. After all, the massive theme park known as Jurassic World housed countless dinosaurs we never […]
Triceratops Skeleton Turns Out to be Torosaurus A partial, horned dinosaur skeleton, initially thought to represent a young adult Triceratops has been reassessed following a month of preparation and cleaning and identified as a Torosaurus (T. latus). It was back in September that Everything Dinosaur first reported on the dinosaur fossil discovery in Thornton, Colorado
Piecing Together the Horned Dinosaur Family Tree Plans are in place at Everything Dinosaur to create a pdf file that highlights the evolution, radiation and diversity of the Ceratopsia. The aim is to use the numerous illustrations of horned dinosaurs that the company has built up in its extensive database to produce a simplified horned

The horned "grendec" is based on a carnotaurus.
Owl Creek Ceratopsid Tooth and Palaeoenvironment Implications Yesterday, team members at Everything Dinosaur published an article on the discovery of a single fossil tooth from a Late Cretaceous horned dinosaur that had been found in Union County (Mississippi). This discovery, the first evidence of a dinosaur from the Owl Creek Formation, has implications for the
Paper on the First Reported Horned Dinosaur Tooth from Eastern North America Published In July 2016, Everything Dinosaur team members reported the discovery of a single tooth from a horned dinosaur in North America. Given the dental batteries that these herbivorous dinosaurs possessed, that teeth, being extremely hard, stand up well to the fossilisation process
Fossils of horned dinosaurs called ceratopsids, the group that includes Triceratops, are usually found in either western North America or Asia. But the discovery of a single ceratopsid tooth in Mississippi, reported in a new study in PeerJ, hints that this group spread into new territory at the tail end of the Mesozoic Era — just prior to going extinct. 23 May 2017
A chance discovery in Mississippi provides the first evidence of an animal closely related to Triceratops in eastern North America. The fossil, a tooth from rocks between 68 and 66 million years old, shows that two halves of the continent previously thought to be separated by seaway were probably connected before the end of the Age of Dinosaurs.

Scientists have found fossils of an ankylosaur they've named Zuul. Perhaps this dinosaur slept above the sheets. Via the LA Times: Someone call the Ghostbusters: Scientists have discovered a new species of horned, club-tailed dinosaur...Show More Summary
The dinosaur's skull has a short, round snout and horns behind its eyes just like the giant ghost that possessed Sigourney Weaver’s character in the 1984 blockbuster.
If dinosaurs are only as cool as their names, then it's going to be hard to out-cool the newly discovered Zuul crurivastator. "Zuul" obviously comes from the Ghostbusters baddie, who Reuters describes as a "big, horned, vaguely dog-like monster with glowing red eyes." The skull of the new species of...
Yehuecauhceratops mudei – Mexican Relative of Nasutoceratops Last week, a new species of North American horned dinosaur was announced. Named Yehuecauhceratops (Y. mudei), at three metres long, it was little more than a third the size of Triceratops, but its discovery, after a ten-year-long exploration of Upper Cretaceous strata of the State of Coahuila (northern […]
Two New Ceratopsian Clades – Nasutoceratopsini and the Centrosaurini Over the last few years, the number of horned dinosaurs described from fossils found in North America has risen at a rapid rate. New additions to the CeratopsidaeShow More Summary
Dr. Michael Ryan, curator and head of vertebrate paleontology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, is the lead author on new research published in the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences that names two new tribes of horned dinosaurs (ceratopsians) based on characteristics related to frill (or head shield) ornamentation.
(Cleveland Museum of Natural History) Scientists identify two new tribes of ceratopsian dinosaurs based on distinctions in frill ornamentation. These two tribes employed different strategies and lived side-by-side in the Late Cretaceous in what is now western North America.
