Centrosaurus (Sen-tro-sore-us.) “The Prickly Lizard”
Centrosaurus acquired its named from the numerous bony projections that run along the edges of its frill. Aside from these a large nasal horn extends upwards from the top of the snout, and a pair of small horns project from the eyebrow. Two more hornlets hook down from the top of the frill, although how developed they are depends upon the species, being most pronounced in C. apertus. The nasal horn is also known to curve either forwards or backwards, and may be indicative of species.
