Torosaurus latus by EmperorDinobot Torosaurus latus by EmperorDinobot
Drawn under the fucking influence of this: [link]

Torosaurus, the "perforating lizard" or more commonly the "bull lizard" might be a 'mature' Triceratops. It has a huge head. Here, a Torosaurus is slightly rearing up, looking for what dangers lay ahead, but no danger, no Tyrannosaurus will ever compare to what is coming from outer space. Let's just say it is a present from God.

You might be too young to remember Nickelodeon's "Rocko's Modern Life", but there were characters on that show called the bigheads, whose son had made a cartoon of them called "the fatheads".

Nice! But I have doubts over Horner's and Scanella's lumping of Torosaurus into Triceratops, and here's why: One of the weirdest inconsistencies in the Trike/Toro mess which rarely gets brought up is that Torosaurus specimens have between 31 and 37 frill studs (epoccipitals), whereas every single Trike has just 17. If Toro is really an old Trike, it should have fewer frill studs than Trike, or at most the same number, not more. Ceratopsians don't add studs as they age, they just lose and reabsorb them!:O While one might argue that Triceratops simply divided its studs upon reaching "Toro-stage" maturity, the problem is that this would result in an even number of studs, whereas Torosaurus has an odd number due to a central stud on the midline of the rear edge (just as in Trike). This also doesn't explain why Toro shows so much more variability in the stud count than Trike - but this would make sense if Toro were a separate, more basal genus than Trike. Also, "stud-splitting" has never been observed in any other ceratopsian, even those for which different growth stages are known (i.e. Pachyrhinosaurus, Chasmosaurus, Centrosaurus)! :XD:

Cool, so do you think Spinosaurus had a hump instead of a sail?;)

Torosaurus! <3 I have fond memories of this species from watching "Walking with Dinosaurs" and playing "Jurassic Park - Operation Genesis" ...though in that game they are smaller than the Triceratops =/

I'm not sure if straight-ahead horns or 45-degree angle horns are better for stabbing.. but.. awesome.

I really like the spiked frill, but is there any scientifical evidence for Torosaurus to have it?

Btw: Great music to be inspired... ;)

Yes. You normally see a non spiked frill, but all post protoceratops ceratopians had spiked frills. Torosaurus' were broader than normal, though.
