DINO-A-DAY #39: Arrhinoceratops

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: Arrhinoceratops
PRONUNCIATION: ah-RHINE-o-sair-a-tops
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Canada, 1923
FUN FACT: This species was originally thought to have no nose-horn, hence the a-rhino-cerat (“no nose horn”) as its name.
