Yinlong skull

The basal ceratopsid Yinlong made a fleeting appearance on here quite some time ago when I was talking about ossified tendons. Here’s the skull of this lovely specimen, yet another of the taxa to have been unearthed at Wucaiwan in the last decade that fills in a gap of various Cretaceous lineages into the Jurassic. The skull has been on loan for some time, so this is photo from the Tokyo Expo was actually the first time I’d seen it.
