Pachyrhinosaurus is an herbivorous dinosaur from the ceratopsid family, with strong teeth in its cheeks for breaking down tough vegetation. Its name comes from the unusual blunt shape of its snout – Pachyrhinosaurus translates to ‘thick-nosed lizard’ – while this genus is identifiable by the array of adornments on its skull, including a frill and horns. Pachyrhinosaurus can grow up to 6m in length, and weigh as much as three tons.
The first Pachyrhinosaurus remains were recovered from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation, Alberta in the mid-1940s, and were described by American fossil expert Charles Mortram Sternberg in 1950. The initial find consisted of two partial skulls, while further investigation of the site unearthed additional fossils in subsequent years.
Pachyrhinosaurus first walked the earth around 75m years ago during the Late Cretaceous period, and is native to Canada. It co-existed with many other dinosaurs including Edmontosaurus and the apex predator Albertosaurus, and foraged in woodlands for food. Its diet consisted mainly of leaves, shrubs and plants.
