DINO-A-DAY #30: Microceratops

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: Microceratops
PRONUNCIATION: my-kro-SAIR-uh-tops
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: China, 1953
FUN FACT: The original name of Microceratops has since been replaced by Microceratus due to the former already belonging to a species of wasp.
