Binomial name: Pentaceratops
Conservations status: Extinct
The name Pentaceratops means “five-horned head”. Featuring five horns and a powerful frill, the Pentaceratops was related to the Triceratops. The Pentaceratops probably had the largest skull of all land-living animals. It is likely that the huge frill was used as a headdress to impress other species. With a length of 7.5 metres and a height of 2.5 metres, the Pentaceratops was the largest representative of Ceratopsidaes. Unlike the more familiar Triceratops, the Pentaceratops wore five horns on his impressive skull. All Ceratopsidae also possessed a powerful neck plate, which was probably less used for defence.
