Prenocephale



dinosaur picture pachycephalosaurus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Cerapoda
  (unranked) Marginocephalia
  Infraorder Pachycephalosauria
  Family Pachycephalosauridae
  Genus Prenocephale
Prenocephale was a herbivorous (plant-eating) dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous period, about 83 to 65 million years ago, in Mongolia, as well as, possibly, North America. It was one of the dinosaurs that died out in the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction, 65 million years ago.

Prenocephale was generally similar in form to one of its close relative, Pachycephalosaurus, but was considerably smaller in size. Like Pachycephalosaurus, it had a thick bony dome on its head with bony knobs and spikes. However, as compared to a number of other animals in this group, Prenocephale's dome was sloping, hence its name which means "sloped head".

Although some scientists have argued that perhaps Prenocephale was an omnivore, it is generally believed to have been a herbivore (plant-eater). Prenocephale probably ate leaves and fruit, and may have been quite selective in its foraging.

Only a limited number of fossils of Prenocephale have so far been found, most of which are skulls, although a few other bones have been found. Based on these, and comparison of its anatomy to its relatives, scientists believe that Prenocephale was about 8 feet (2.4 meters) long, and weighed something in the region of 290 pounds (130 kilograms).
