Did you know?


There is a  behind the height and length, because it isn't sure how tall or long it exactly was because they didn't find a whole skeleton? The teeth had leaf shaped crowns? Scientists are  debating if Stymoloch and Dracorex were juvenile forms of Pachycephalosaurus.


QUESTION: What was the use for the dome shaped head? 


ANSWER: That isn't really clear, they could have been used for headbutting or as new theories suggest for flanking.
