Dr Nick Longrich, from the Milner Centre for Evolution, has been studying the jaw fragments of a horned dinosaur about the size of a dog. It is believed to be the smaller cousin of the better-known Triceratops – both members of the Ceratopsia dinosaur family.
The jaw fragments are more slender than that of Ceratopsia found on the West Coast of North America, suggesting the dinosaurs evolved differently based on their diets.
Further information on this discovery and suggested resources are accessible via the Twig Newsdesk. Twig is available to all educators and learners in Scotland via the Glow Launch Pad.
