Is there a possibility that the funny Pachyrhinoceros "nore lump"
sported a big huge horn? Like they showed in the PBS "Dinosaurs"
series. Also, how similar is the Pachyrhino nose bump to the new Two
Medicine ceratopsian (I can't remeber if its Achelosaurus or Einosaurus
(sic) that has the similarly messy looking bone in that area).
