DINO-A-DAY #67: Pachycephalosaurus

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: Pachycephalosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: pak-ee-SEF-uh-lo-SAWR-us
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Montana, 1850s
FUN FACT: Scientists have recently discredited the idea that Pachycephalosaurus regularly used its thick skull in head-to-head combat, but they can’t prove that it didn’t happen at least once.
