DINO-A-DAY #20: Centrosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Centrosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: SEN-tro-SAWR-us
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Alberta, Canada, 1904
FUN FACT: The names of Centrosaurus and Kentrosaurus (a stegosaur, #77), are both derived from the same greek word “kentron,” meaning “point or prickle.”
