Description:

Originating from what is now the northwestern United States and Canada, Styracosaurus, or "spiked lizard," is an herbivore with an armament. A two-foot-long bony spike juts up like a rhino's from its nose, and six more large spikes thrust out from its neck fringe. As cruel-looking as these spikes appear, Styracosaurus uses them primarily for defense and spends most of its time calmly chomping with its beak at low-growing cycads and other vegetation.

Around the size of an average mini-van, but a good deal heftier at three tons, Styracosaurus is always seen down on its four legs. In comparison to some of the lankier bipedal dinosaurs like Spinosaurus, Styracosaurus' legs may appear rather short. They are able to move quite fast when necessary, though, and can reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.

If threatened, Styracosaurus bring their impressive spikes into play. Larger adults in a herd will charge at a predator and try to impale it. Even the mightiest of carnivores risk disembowelment and death should they try to prey on a herd of healthy Styracosaurus. Adult Styracosaurus have also been witnessed interposing themselves between predators and juvenile Styracosaurus. Whether this is merely by happenstance or some kind of instinct is unknown.

The Life Cycle

Who do they like to live with and eat?

 

To build a good animal exhibit you need to ask a few questions: (click them for the answers)

Which fence is suitable for this animal in terms of strength, if it can be climbed or jumped over?

How big should the exhibit be and what Terrain should be used?

What foliage should be used?

What rocks should be used?

What shelter does the animal need?

What toy does the animal like?

How deep should the exhibit be if using the "Pit Method"?
