Although probably discovered in 1876 by Edward
Drinker Cope, only fragmentary remains were discovered and Cope named the
dinosaur, Monoclonius. In 1904, Lawrence Lambe discovered a frill section and
coined the name Centrosaurus. Since that time, numerous remains have been
unearthed in the Red Deer River area of Alberta, Canada. Several complete
skeletons and skin impressions have been discovered and described from this
area. A mid to late Cretaceous dinosaur, Centrosaurus was medium sized, with a
single nose horn and small spines around the back of its neck frill. It is
believed it had thick, strong hind and fore-limbs with hooves. The abundance of
multiple skeletal remains in close proximity may indicate Centrosaurus was
a herd animal, traveling in groups for protection against the large Cretaceous
predatory dinosaurs. Text by:
