I like dinosaurs. I like them everyday.

Torosaurus (“Perforated Lizard”)

Lived: The late Cretaceous period.

Size: 9 metres and 4 to 6 tonnes.


The name, Torosaurus, refers to the two large holes found in the fossil of the frill around the skull. Quite recently, it have come under debate as to whether the Triceratops, perhaps the most well-known ceratopsian, is just a juvenile Torosaurus. As of 2011, there is an article published arguing that the two are indeed separate but closely related species.
