Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Cerapoda
  (unranked) Marginocephalia
  Infraorder Ceratopsia
  Family Ceratopsidae
  Subfamily Centrosaurinae
  Genus Styracosaurus
Styracosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in the late Cretaceous period, about 76 to 70 million years ago. It was about 18 feet (5.5 meters) long and weighed around 3 tons.

The name Styracosaurus was chosen by Lawrence Lambe in 1913, and means "spiked lizard". This name was of course chosen in reference to the animal's most distinctive features: the horns around its neck frill, the smaller horns on its cheeks, and the large horn on its snout.

Although it usually believed that Styracosaurus became extinct many millions of years ago, some cryptozoologists (people who search for rumored or mythical animals whose existence is uncertain) have suggested that an animal claimed to be living in Cameroon, which is known as "Ngoubou", might be a surviving ("relict") Styracosaurus. As yet however, there is no definitive proof of the existence of this animal. For more information see Living Dinosaurs?
