Latest Torosaurus Stories
For the last 15 summers, research teams from the Museum of the Rockies have been exploring the badlands of Eastern Montana to excavate dinosaur bones from the Hell Creek Formation. Those teams have made many exciting and important discoveries regarding some of the last dinosaurs to walk our planet.
A debate over whether Triceratops and Torosaurus are two different life stages of the same species has been decided in a new analysis of the prehistoric specimens classifying them into two distinct groups.
Researchers report that they have found further evidence that genera of the Triceratops actually represent different individuals that all belong to the Triceratops genus.
Triceratops and Torosaurus have long been considered the kings of the horned dinosaurs.
New research is upending more than 100 years of thought regarding the dinosaurs known as Triceratops and Torosaurus.
Named dinosaurs may actually be juvenile or subadults of already known taxa.
By Mike Boehm When the angry, life-sized mama T. rex came roaring through a curtain to defend its young during the St. Paul, Minn., run of "Walking With Dinosaurs -- the Live Experience," Kristi Curry Rogers momentarily stopped thinking like a professor and responded like a protective mom.
What does it take to bring a dinosaur to life - or at least a life-sized re-creation? Start with 323 yards of fabric stretched over 144 yards of foam. Stuff the contraption with a half a mile of cabling, six hydraulic motors and a dozen truck batteries.
Torosaurus, meaning “perforated lizard,” is a genus of ceratopsid dinosaur from the late Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period (70 to 65 million years ago). Torosaurus is often mis-referred to as “bull” (from the Latin word taurus) lizard. But its actual name comes from the Greek word toreo, meaning “to perforate or pierce.” Its name is in reference to the window-like holes found in the elongated frill, which have traditional served to distinguish it from the solid...
Anatotitan or "large duck" is a genus of flat-headed dinosaur commonly referred to as a "duck-billed dinosaur". It lived during the end of the Cretaceous Period, in what is now North America. Its remains have been preserved in the Hell Creek and Lance Formations dated 68 to 65 mya. They were among the last dinosaurs that existed on the planet before the extinction of all dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Like many dinosaurs, the history of Anatotitan is somewhat confusing. The original...
