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
There’s a giant, weird space in the skulls of big horned dinosaurs - haven’t you heard? -- Read more on ScientificAmerican.com
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.
Scientists have named two new clades, or tribes, of horned dinosaurs (ceratopsians) based on fossils collected from the United States and Alberta, Canada. The new tribes are Nasutoceratopsini and Centrosaurini. Research describing the updated relationships among horned dinosaurs appears online in the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences.
For years, paleontologists have theorized that many of the world's largest dinosaurs sported head ornaments (think horns, knobs, and crests) as a means of intimidation and defense, and that these giants evolved to be so big because size helped them be more effective killers. But now new research published in...

Some dinosaurs that had bony protrusions on their skulls — such as horns, crests and knobs — evolved into giant dinosaurs 20 times faster than their relatives without skull ornaments did, a new study finds.
The Triceratops family tree just got a little spikier. A decade ago, a retired nuclear physicist uncovered the large skull, legs, hips and backbone of a dinosaur on his land near Winifred, Mont. Now, the remains have been identified in a new study as a new member of the ceratopsid family, dubbed Spiclypeus shipporum, meaning “spiked shield.” 23 Sep 2016
