October 1st: Mark Your Calendars!


This book can't come out fast enough! It's the long-awaited monograph about Pachyrhinosaurus, although oddly enough, it's not P. canadensis. It's a new species, smaller, with differing skull ornamentation. The new animal is from older rocks than P. canadensis and may be ancestral to it. Interestingly, the juveniles have Centrosaurus-like nasal horns which are later reworked into bosses as the animal matures. The book can be published on October 1st from the website linked above, and will cost $50 in the USA.
