Protoceratops andrewsi, adult skull

Protoceratops is a genus of small protoceratopsid dinosaurs that lived in Asia during the Late Cretaceous, around 75 to 71 million years ago. Protoceratops were up to 6.6–8.2 feet long and around 137–229 pounds in body mass. They were characterized by a proportionally large skull, short and stiff neck, and neck frill. A horn-like structure was present over the nose. They had a prominent parrot-like beak at the tip of the jaws. Protoceratops, like many other ceratopsians, were herbivores equipped with prominent jaws and teeth suited for chopping foliage and other plant material. They are thought to have lived in highly sociable groups of mixed ages. They laid soft-shelled eggs, a rare occurrence in dinosaurs. Protoceratops were hunted by Velociraptor, and one particularly famous specimen (the Fighting Dinosaurs) preserves a pair of them locked in combat.
