    This is a story about the ancient environments of Protoceratops, the diminutive, plant-eating dinosaur that first thrilled the world 80 years ago when Roy Chapman Andrews cabled reports of its existence to the United States (see Fig. 1). Andrews' teams had found the remains of the beast and its eggs, demonstrating for the first time that dinosaurs laid eggs. Velociraptor was a mid-sized dromaeosaurid, with adults measuring up to m (6 ft 9 1 ⁄ 2 in) long, m (1 ft 7 1 ⁄ 2 in) high at the hip, and weighing up to 15 kg (33 lb), though there is a higher estimate of kg (43 1 ⁄ 2 lb). The skull, which grew up to 25 cm (10 in) long, was uniquely up-curved, concave on the upper surface and convex on the lower.

    Protoceratops is derived from the Greek "proto" (first), "ceras" (horn) and "ops" (face). Roy Chapman Andrews, who is honored in the species epithet, andrewsi, declared this critter the "long-sought ancestor of Triceratops" but it's no such d, because of its frill it may appear to be closer to ceratopsids proper than, say, Psittacosaurus, but protoceratopsids (Protoceratops and.   Advantages: Aside from its rudimentary frill, Protoceratops didn't possess much in the way of natural defenses, lacking horns, body armor or even a Stegosaurus-like "thagomizer" at the end of its this dinosaur did have going for it was its presumed herding behavior. As with modern wildebeest, a vast herd of Protoceratops worked to the advantage of its strongest, healthiest .

Despite its name—Greek for "first horned face"—Protoceratops wasn't the first ceratopsian, the family of herbivorous dinosaurs characterized, for the most part, by their elaborate frills and multiple horns.(That honor goes to much earlier, cat-sized genera like Psittacosaurus and Chaoyangsaurus.) Adding insult to injury, Protoceratops didn't even possess any horns worth.

Protoceratops, (genus Protoceratops), ceratopsian dinosaur found as fossils in the Gobi Desert from million-year-old deposits of the Late Cretaceous Period. Protoceratops was a predecessor of the more familiar horned dinosaurs such as Triceratops.

More Protoceratops Dinosaur Details. Protoceratops is a special dinosaur because they had really large eyes. At first scientist thought this meant they were nocturnal (they came out at night).

However, it is now believed that they cathemeral. This means they probably came. Protoceratops andrewsi was discovered in Mongolia in by an expedition from the American Museum of Natural History led by Roy Chapman Andrews. Its genus name means "first-horned face," and its species name was in honor of the expedition's leader.

This volume presents a broad range of cutting-edge research on the functional biology, behavior, systematics, paleoecology, and paleogeography of the horned dinosaurs, and includes descriptions of newly identified species. Protoceratops was a lived in the Cretaceous period and inhabited fossils have been found in places such as Gansu (China), Bayankhongor (Mongolia) and Inner Mongolia (China).

Quick facts about Protoceratops: Existed from million years ago to 66 million years ago. Protoceratops andrewsi is a fairly small and primitive ceratopsian, or horned dinosaur.

Although it lacked the horns of later species, Protoceratops had a distinct bump above its nostrils and thickened bone over its eye sockets. Like its larger and geologically younger relative Triceratops, this herbivore also had a bony neck frill that may have been [ ].Protoceratops, a herbivore, was about 2 m ( ft) long and weighed kg ( lb) or more.

It had a large turtle-beaked head, almost as long as the trunk of the body, and the flattened parietal and squamosal bones at the rear of the skull were flared out to form a crest, or frill.Protoceratops (/ˌproʊtoʊˈsɛrətɒps/; from Greek proto-/πρωτο- "first", cerat-/κερατ- "horn" and -ops/-ωψ "face", meaning "First Horned Face")[1] is a genus of sheep-sized ( m long) herbivorous ceratopsian dinosaur, from the Upper Cretaceous Period (Campanian stage) of what is now Mongolia.
