DINO-A-DAY #38: Pentaceratops

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: Pentaceratops
PRONUNCIATION: PEN-tah-sair-uh-tops
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: New Mexico, 1923
FUN FACT: Pentaceratops’ name means “five-horned face,” which refers to the two horns at the top of its head, one at its snout, and two more located under the eyes.
