Einiosaurus : Baby / Juvenile Einiosaurus
Einiosaurus is a medium-sized centrosaurine ("short-frilled") ceratopsian from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian stage) of northwestern Montana. The name means 'buffalo lizard', in a combination of Blackfeet Indian and Latinized Ancient Greek and the specific name (E. procurvicornis) means 'forward-curving horn' in Latin and Ancient Greek.
Einiosaurus was a herbivorous dinosaur and grew to 6 m (19.8 ft) in length. It is typically portrayed with a low, strongly forward-curving nasal horn that resembles a bottle opener, though this may only occur in some adults, and as seen in this photo has not yet curved in this individual.
Supraorbital (over-the-eye) horns are low and rounded if present at all, as opposed to ceratopsids with prominent supraorbital horns such as Triceratops. A pair of large spikes projects backward from the relatively small frill.
We offer here the first and only skull cast of a juvenile Einiosaurus.
