Ceratopsian Dinosaur Mounted Skeleton
A lively, fast-moving dinosaur, Psittacosaurus (meaning parrot lizard) is aptly named. Its beak-like mouth, displaying only cheek teeth toward the rear, is remarkably bird-like in appearance. Psittacosaurs were believed to have exhibited herding behavior. They are unlike other members of the Ceratopsia group (such as Triceratops and Protoceratops) in that they possessed no horns. The genus lived 97.5 - 119 million years ago. The present juvenile individual is animated in a three-dimensional mount.
