Ceratopsian Dinosaurs



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Cerapoda
  (unranked) Marginocephalia
  Infraorder Ceratopsia
The Ceratopsia (meaning "horned faces") are an infraorder of herbivorous (plant-eating) dinosaurs, that were characterized by having beaks. Early members of this infraorder, such as Psittacosaurus, were bipedal (walking on two legs). Later Ceratopsians tended to be much larger and quadrupedal (walking on four legs), often had elaborate neck frills and facial horns, and included dinosaurs such as Triceratops and Styracosaurus.

Ceratopsians first appeared during the late Jurassic period and survived until the end of the Cretaceous period. At the end of the Cretaceous. about 65 million years ago, the last Ceratopsians, along with all the other remaining non-avian dinosaurs, died out during a mass extinction.

The Ceratopsia infraorder, together with the infraorders of Pachycephalosauria ("thick-headed lizards") and Ornithopoda ("bird feet"), form the the suborder Cerapoda of the Ornithischian dinosaurs. Ceratopsians are sometimes grouped together with Pachycephalosaurs as the Marginocephalia ("fringed heads"), since the these two infraorders share some common features and appear to be related.

Dinosaur Classification

The skull of Ceratopsians is the most common part of the animal to be preserved as a fossil (in contrast to other dinosaurs, where the skulls are often not found). Indeed, a number of species of Ceratopsians are known only from their skulls.

Ceratopsian skulls:



Albertoceratops
 


Anchiceratops
 


Avaceratops
 


Centrosaurus
 


Chasmosaurus
 


Monoclonius
 

Ceratopsian Dinosaur Timeline:



Ceratopsian dinosaurs first appeared during the late Jurassic, about 156 million years ago, and survived until the end of the Cretaceous period, about 65 million years ago

Horns and Beaks completes Ken Carpenter’s series on the major dinosaur types. As with his volumes on armored, carnivorous, and sauropodomorph dinosaurs, this book collects original and new information, reflecting the latest discoveries and research on these two groups of animals. The Ornithopods include Iguanodon, one of the first dinosaurs ever discovered and analyzed, and perhaps the most common and best-documented group, the hadrosaurs or "duckbilled dinosaurs." The Ceratopsians include Triceratops, known for its distinctive three-horned skull and protective collar.

Product Description:
While triceratopses are one of the most recognizable dinosaurs, they are far from the only ones with distinctive features on and around their heads. This colorful, informative volume discusses the marginocephalians, dinosaurs with fringed heads. Readers will learn about how these dinosaurs' frills and thick or domed heads helped them identify one another, eat, and survive. Timelines and classifications help readers distinguish between various species and provide a complete picture of how the marginocephalians lived.

Product Description:
By Charles W. Gilmorb. INTRODUCTION. The fossils on which this paper is based were collected by me and my assistant, Mr. J. F. Strayrer, during the summer of 1913, while working imder the auspices of the United States Geological Survey on theB lackfeet Indian Reservation, in northwestern Montana. The specimens were obtained from exposures of the Two Medicine formation along Milk River near the Canadian boimdary, in T. 37 N., R. 8W., about 30 miles northwest of the town of Cut Bank, Mont., and along Two Medicine River in T. 31 N., R. 7W., about 15 miles southwest of Cut Bank. Vertebrate remains were foimd at these places in 1911 and 1912 byE ugene Stebinger, while he was engaged in Geological Survey work, and he was the first to note that the locahties are good fields for finding specimens of fossil vertebrates. Although the present collection is small, it is of considerable scientific interest because it supplements the collections made in neighboring areas by other investigators, and because it contains a new genus of Ceratopsia in addition to other recognizable specimens which afford evidence that considerably extends the geologic and geographic ranges of forms heretofore described. The beds from which the collection was made constitute the upper part of the Two Medicine formation, which includes the equivalent of the Judith River formation and some older beds. The fossiliferous beds are also the equivalent of the upper part of theB elly River formation as found in neighboring areas of Canada. The fauna of the American Judith River formation, although diversified, is very inadequately known. Many of the genera and species have been foimded on specimens so scant and fragmentary that it is almost impossible to refer to them subsequently discovered and more perfect materials. Recent coD ections made by L. M. Lambe, of the Canada Geological Survey, and by Barn
