HUMOR [was Re: Styracosaurus Query]

Wow! A post about an ornithischian! Whilst I am a sauropod worker (and hence a saurischian afficianado), it is always refreshing to see ornithischian dinosaur posts on here (or at least posts about non-avian dinosaurs). Advice to budding dino paleontologists everywhere: steer clear of theropods and bird origins, and concentrate on the overlooked but fascinating herbivores of the dinosaur world. =)

And now I know I will catch heat from theropod workers everywhere. I expect Tom Holtz to have a few words with me, Chris Brochu, and other theropod-loving list members. So be it. =)

Lots of sauropodian love,

Matt Bonnan

Hi Marilyn,

This is surely not as complete as what you were hoping for, but
off-hand, I find of p. 14 of Peter Dodson's THE HORNED DINOSAURS (ISBN
0-691-02882-6), that Styracosaurus is found in the Judith River Formation of
Alberta (and possibly of Montana, too -- text is unclear on this point),
dating between 77 and 74 Ma. The interval is Judithian.

    Sorry I am not more helpful.

Gentlepersons, Dino-aficionados, Adult Children of Alien Invaders, Students. Professionals, AndList-Lurkers,

Does anyone have on hand (with citations please) the information
pertaining to the geographic range, and in particular, the FAD-LAD
for Styracosaurus? If so, would you please share it with me? (and
others, if you so choose)

Thanks in advance,
