Styracosaurus means "spiked lizard" and is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsian from de Cretaceous Period. This animal was a relatively large dinosaur, reaching lengths of 5.5 meters and weighing nearly 3 tones.

According to the last researches about triceratops, the head was all coated with keratine. That's why following the parsimonious evolution I decided to make the same with this ceratopsian dinosaur. Also the scales follow the same size and pattern that we know about triceratops.
