Vagaceratops irvinensis (male) by TheMorlock Vagaceratops irvinensis (male) by TheMorlock
The Wandering Hornface is one of the most striking ceratopsians in the Dinosaur Park formation. Like all ceratopsians, it is an omnivore, feeding mostly on vegetation, but will supplement it's diet with carrion, and small animals.

Vagaceratops. I'm not kidding, that's really it's name. Jeez, and I thought Hoplophoneus mentalis was unfair. Colour scheme originally based on the Common Pheasant, but it kind of took on a life of it's own, and evolved into tiger stripes. I figured with a name like that, the least I could do was give it a kickass colour scheme. Gave it a grey background instead of the usual white so the white parts would stand out.

Well I've seen lots of people do their own takes on dinosaurs, but few have given them common names so I applause you.

Great Art ! 
I always wondered does there any chance to these creatures have feathers?

Their ancestors probably had feather-like structures (like the quills on the tail) but they lost them as they got bigger, like how large mammal herbivores like rhinos and elephants lost most of their hair.

Really İnteresting....Sacrifice for being bigger. Poor creatures become weak to coldness...

They don't become weaker to cold, they would get too hot if they were covered in feathers. Big herbivores need to lose heat.

Oh ! I thought feathers either use for heathing up or colding up-(depends on the type of feather.) Did They only used for heathing up and display?

I would assume so. It has been hypothesised that Pachyrhinosaurus had feathery integument as an adaption to the cold climate of Cretaceous Alaska.

İnteresting...Dinosaurs're the most interesting species/creatures I ever saw. (Either the one who had feathers or not/Or They either had feathers or not)
