Ceratopsian crests II

A couple of months back I posted this on the display of ceratopsian skulls in Tokyo and lamented that they looked great, but were several meters off the ground and thus their position was rather sub-optimal. What’s especially nice with the Carengie’s version is not only that these were nice and accessible, but are all different species to those in Tokyo so between the two, it’s quite a collection. Here then are are Carnegie heads:

Diabloceratops

Zuniceratops

Pachyrhinosaurus

Torosaurs

    That texture on the jugal is real, their lighting shows it of nicely. What does it represent????

    I see they haven’t deprecated Torosaurus just yet. Given the recent brouhaha, and ongoing discussion on the Triceratops/Torosaurus relation it would be nice to see them side by side. Unfortunatly the Carnegie is a bit out of the way for me.
