Protoceratops is Our Favourite Dinosaur

The other day team members at Everything Dinosaur were asked by a Year 3 pupil during a dinosaur workshop in school, what was our favourite dinosaur?  With over 1,100 genera to choose from there is certainly a wide choice, but after a little bit of discussion we choose Protoceratops.  A large number of fossils of this horned dinosaur have been found, from very old, mature individuals down to babies and of course nests of eggs.  With so much fossil material to study, Protoceratops is right up there as one of Everything Dinosaur’s favourites.

During this particular school visit we discussed with the Year 3 pupils Protoceratops and other horned dinosaurs, we then concluded our dinosaur work in schools on this occasion with a quick question and answer session with our palaeontologists.  It seems that our visit and the dinosaur term topic in general was a big success.

During our discussions we stated how much we enjoyed working on this Asian dinosaur and highlighted a top-quality Protoceratops model.
