Pachycephalosaurus or Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis is famous for having a large, bony dome atop its skull, up to 10 in. thick, which safely cushioned its tiny brain. The dome’s rear aspect was edged with bony knobs and short bony spikes projected upwards from the snout. The spikes were probably blunt, not sharp.
Pachycephalosaurus “thick-headed lizard,” from Greek pachys- “thick”, kephale “head” and sauros “lizard” is a genus of pachycephalosaurid dinosaurs. The type species, P. wyomingensis, is the only known species. It lived during the Late Cretaceous Period (Maastrichtian stage) of what is now North America. Remains have been excavated in Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming. It was a herbivorous creature which is primarily known from a single skull and a few extremely thick skull roofs, though more complete fossils have been found in recent years. Pachycephalosaurus was one of the last non-avian dinosaurs before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event.
Pachycephalosaurus was a bipedal herbivore with an extremely thick skull roof. It possessed long hind limbs and small forelimbs. Pachycephalosaurus is the largest known pachycephalosaur. The thick skull domes of Pachycephalosaurus and related genera gave rise to the hypothesis that pachycephalosaurs used their skulls in intra-species combat. This hypothesis has been disputed in recent years. The anatomy of Pachycephalosaurus is poorly known, as only skull remains have been described. Pachycephalosaurus is famous for having a large, bony dome atop its skull, up to 10 in. thick, which safely cushioned its tiny brain. The dome’s rear aspect was edged with bony knobs and short bony spikes projected upwards from the snout.
The skull was short, and possessed large, rounded eye sockets that faced forward, suggesting that the animal had good eyesight and was capable of binocular vision. Pachycephalosaurus had a small muzzle which ended in a pointed beak.
