As an herbivorous dinosaur known as a dome-headed dinosaur, it is characterized by very thick skull that resembled a dome. Domed skull up to 25 cm thick was surrounded by a series of bumps, and the sharp bumps also existed around its mouth. Its flat teeth were bent backwards, with saw-like blades helping it to cut leaves. Pachycephalosaurus lived in U.S. and Canada, grew to be about 8 meters long and weighted 1~2 tons.
As a carnivorous dinosaur of the late Cretaceous period, it is one of the most frightening and fiercest dinosaurs, as indicated by its name which means tyrant lizard. It is easily distinguished with anatomical features fit to attack and dominate other dinosaurs such as sharp, cone-shaped teeth as long as 20 cm, saw-like blades both in front and back of the teeth, big and long hind legs, and sharp claws. Tyrannosaurus lived in U.S. and Canada, grew up to 10~14 m long and weighted 4.5~7 tons.
As an omnivorous dinosaur of the Cretaceous Period, Oviraptor was named egg stealer and characterized by a crest on its skull. It had a short dome-shaped skull, curved beak with no teeth, long and slender hind legs and a short tail. Oviraptor was 1.5~2.5 m long and weighted 25~35 kg, which has been found in Mongolia. It is believed that Oviraptor was very agile animal and could run swiftly.
As an herbivore of the late Cretaceous Period, Protoceratops is characterized by a large skull with a frill comparable to its body size. Its body was bulky like a large pig, showing a primitive form. It also had a beak much like that of a parrot. Equipped with a strong and hard beak with sharp teeth, it is assumed to have been able to masticate plants very well. Protoceratops lived in Mongolia and China, was 1.8 m long and weighted 150 kg.
