Centrosaurus was about 20 feet (6 meters) long, and had a single horn on the center of its nose. The nose horn would curve backwards or forward depending on the particular species of Centrosaurus.
Lawrence Lambe discovered the first fossils of Centrosaurus in Alberta, Canada. Lambe was also the person who coined the name Centrosaurus, which he did in 1904.
Lambe found fossil beds containing hundreds of individuals in close proximity. It is thought perhaps that these animals died while trying to cross a river, and these fossil beds also suggest that Centrosaurus probably lived in large herds.
Centrosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived from 75 to 70 million years ago
