Tsintaosaurus spinorhinus [n1] is infamously known as the “unicorn” of hadrosaurs, a lambeosaurine (tsintaosaurin, from Tsintaosaurini) hadrosaurid with a single elongated, solid bony spike protruding from its forehead.

Apatosaurus louisae, by far one of the more interesting sauropods of the Morrison. This is really just to show off facial integument at close range for sauropods. That is, fleshy oral tissues, distal nostrils near snout tip, a hint of … Continue reading
