Kosmoceratops richardsoni 1/18th scale Dinosaur Action Figure

(ornamented horned face)

A close relative of Spiclypeus, Kosmoceratops has one of the most unique ceratopsian skulls with its short frill, outward-pointing brow horns, and downward-curving frill horns. This distinct look is thought to have evolved due to an isolated life on the island of Laramidia. 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 Shannon Beaumont.

Recommended for ages 15 and up.

Kosmoceratops richardsoni Information:

Kosmoceratops richardsoni is an extinct species of ceratopsid dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period, around 76 to 75 million years ago. It belongs to the family Ceratopsidae, which includes well-known dinosaurs like Triceratops. Kosmoceratops was a herbivorous dinosaur characterized by its unique and elaborate skull ornamentation.

Here are some key points of information about Kosmoceratops richardsoni:

Discovery: The first fossils of Kosmoceratops were discovered in the Kaiparowits Formation of Utah, USA, in 2006. The dinosaur was named and described by Scott D. Sampson, Mark A. Loewen, Andrew A. Farke, Eric M. Roberts, Catherine A. Forster, Joshua A. Smith, and Alan L. Titus in 2010.

Skull Ornamentation: One of the most distinctive features of Kosmoceratops is its intricate skull ornamentation. It had an array of well-developed horn-like structures on its frill, which extended from the back of its head. These horns and frills vary in shape and size, giving the dinosaur a unique appearance among ceratopsids.

Nose Horns: Kosmoceratops had a pair of large, curved nose horns (or nasal horns) pointing forward. These horns would have been used for display and possibly combat, much like those of other ceratopsids.

Frill Features: The frill of Kosmoceratops was adorned with numerous small, ornamental hooks and spikes, creating a striking pattern. The purpose of these frill features is still a subject of scientific speculation, but it is believed that they played a role in species recognition, mate attraction, or defense.

Size: Kosmoceratops was a relatively small ceratopsid compared to its more famous relative, Triceratops. It measured about 15 to 18 feet (4.5 to 5.5 meters) in length and stood around 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall at the hip.

Herbivorous Diet: Like other ceratopsids, Kosmoceratops was a plant-eating dinosaur. It likely fed on ferns, cycads, and other vegetation prevalent in its Late Cretaceous environment.

Taxonomy: Kosmoceratops is classified within the subfamily Chasmosaurinae, which includes ceratopsids with long frills and large eye horns. Its unique features make it one of the most remarkable members of this group.
