Einiosaurus procurvicornis 1/18th scale Dinosaur Action Figure

(buffalo lizard)

Known for its unusual nasal horn, procurvicornis means ‘forward curving horn’. Einiosaurus is thought to represent an intermediate stage of centrosaurines, in between those with a straight nasal horn and those with a blunt nasal boss, i.e. Pachyrhinosaurus. This ceratopsian figure measures 10 in. long and has 19 points of articulation. Includes collectible trading card, unique background display insert and instruction sheet. Packaging features red-foil printing with package art by Raul Ramos.

Recommended for ages 15 and up.

Einiosaurus procurvicornis Information:

Einiosaurus procurvicornis is an extinct species of ceratopsian dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 73 to 68 million years ago. It belongs to the family Ceratopsidae and is classified within the subfamily Centrosaurinae. Fossils of Einiosaurus have been found in Montana, USA.

Here are some key characteristics and information about Einiosaurus procurvicornis:

Physical appearance: Einiosaurus was a medium-sized dinosaur, reaching lengths of around 15 to 20 feet (4.6 to 6 meters). Like other ceratopsians, it had a distinctive appearance characterized by a beak-like mouth, a large frill at the back of its head, and facial horns. Specifically, Einiosaurus had two long, curved horns above its eyes, similar to those of other centrosaurine dinosaurs.

Unique nasal horn: One of the most remarkable features of Einiosaurus is its nasal horn. Unlike many other ceratopsians that had a single horn on their nose, Einiosaurus had a short, forward-curving nasal horn. This horn pointed downward and was used for defense or possibly in intraspecific combat during mating displays or territorial disputes.

Frill ornamentation: The frill, which is the bony plate-like structure at the back of the skull, featured unique ornamentation. It had small, triangular, and forward-projecting hooks along the edge of the frill, which were likely used as display structures or as a way to identify different individuals within the species.

Behavior: As with other ceratopsians, Einiosaurus was a herbivorous dinosaur, likely feeding on low-lying vegetation such as ferns, cycads, and other plants that were abundant during the Late Cretaceous.

Discovery: Einiosaurus was first described by Scott Sampson and colleagues in 1997 based on fossils discovered in Montana, USA. The name "Einiosaurus" is derived from Greek, with "einos" meaning "bison" and referring to its bison-like appearance, and "sauros" meaning "lizard."

Habitat and environment: Einiosaurus inhabited a lush, coastal environment during the Late Cretaceous period, which is now part of the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. The region was characterized by rivers, swamps, and forests, supporting diverse ecosystems with a variety of dinosaurs and other ancient life forms.
