As it goes on its daily routine, a male Styracosaurus accidentally loses its footing and begins to slide down a slope in the alluvial plains of what today is Alberta, Canada.
Styracosaurus ("spiked lizard") was a very short-lived, medium-sized centrosaurine that lived 75 million years ago in Canada. Like many other "classic" centrosaurines, its frill was comparatively short and it had a large nasal horn and reduced or nonexistent brow horns. In addition, its frill featured an array of large epiparietal spikes that gave the animal a rather spectacular look. also like other ceratopsians, it was likely a herbivore, using its narrow beak to cut leaves and stems and processing its food with a battery of shearlike teeth. It measured up to 5.5 metres in length.
I wanted to revisit Styracosaurus, which I had last drawn a few years ago, but this time featuring an updated look, with more accurate body shape, limbs and integument. And I'm pretty satisfied with the result, I must say.
