The world’s largest dinosuar fossil site that was recently found in China’s Shandong province has yielded its first big discovery. A 2 meter long skull resembling that of the famed horned dinosaur triceratops has been found. This is the first evidence that Ceratopsids, which is a family of four-legged, horned and crested dinosuars, lived outside of what is now North America.
Although early ancestors of ceratopsids have been found in China, true Ceratopsids have only been found in Alaska, western Canada and the western US… until now. The bones have not been precisely dated but are thought to be from 100 to 65 million years old.
