Its back end is strange... the colour and the small tail.

There was a dinosaur called a pachyrhinosaurus? Looks like that character on that movie gets the last laugh :) That's such a tiny little tail.

Great rendering, but are you sure you based it on the alaskan species? it's missing several key features and looks kinda like a hybrid between P. lakustai (wide gap between nasal boss and orbital boss) and P. canadensis (no pommel at the boss tip, straight rear parietal horns). P. perotorum also had a large 'dome' over the back of the nasal boss, two small horns arcing over the parietal fenestrae, and a bizarre rounded beak.

Thanks for pointing this out. You are right, it looks more like P. canadensis than anything else. Expect an update soon.

So this species confirms that the genus had a big stump in place of a horn?

I thought this was already confirmed a while back?

Well, you know how there are stubborn holdouts and annoying people using out of date materials.
