Pink Dinosaur #203

Pink Stegoceras by David Tana

20 – Stegoceras validum – this North American pachycephalosaurid lived in the Late Cretaceous (~ 83-65 mya) and sported a 76 mm thick skull adorned with a rounded dome and spikes adorning the ridge on the back of its skull.  Contrary to popular conception, they probably did not use these skulls as battering rams.  The reference for this restoration is a skeleton on display at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta, Canada.  Color pencil on paper.
