I sincerly doubt that Pachyrinoceros (or is that
Pachyrinosaurus? I've heard both...) had a big-ass horn on it's snout.
Just recently I was studying the beast for art purposes and I
couldn't help but notice that it has an absolutley huge head
in comparison to it's body already; that problem would be compounded
by one of _The Dinosaurs_ style horns. The only way I can see it
being able to hold it's head up with one of those is for it to have
an incredibally muscled neck and perhaps some kind of counter balance
at the rear.
I don't know what it's worth, but that's what I think...
