What is a Chasmosaurus?
The long frilled ceratopids (a horned dinosaur) known as Chasmosaurus, are believed to have lived during the late Cretaceous Period of the Late Mesozoic Era, 80 to 75 million years ago. They were less than 6 metres in length, and considered to be a smaller sized herbivores (plant eaters), when compared to the earlier Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus. Chasmosaurus are found in the Cretaceous rocks of North America. Although considered to be closely related to the short frilled ceratopids, like the Triceratops, the Chasmosaurus skulls have massive frills that completely cover the shoulder section of this animal. Distinctive is its narrow beak resembling a parrot's and sharp teeth for easily cutting off its plant food. It also has a short nose horn and long eye guard horns. Horned dinosaurs are believed to have evolved from the Protoceratops and Psittacosaurus found in Asia. It is assumed that the Bering Straits, and other land connected areas of the era, allowed these dinosaurs to roam to North America.
