Cut-out puppet of a Styracosaurus

Styracosaurus

Styracosaurus was a plant-eating dinosaur that lived about 75 million years ago in the part of the world we now call North America.

Styracosaurus means 'spiked lizard' after the long horns on its neck frill and nose. It even had small horns on its cheeks.

Its body resembled a rhinoceros and would have been about 5.5 metres long.
