Say hello to: STYGIMOLOCH

STYGIMOLOCH (stij-ih-MAH-luk) "River of Hades Devil" (Latin Stygus = of the mythical River Styx + Herbrew Moloch = evil spirit, because it was found in the Hell Creek formation in Montana and because of its presumed demonic apearance)

A high dimed PACHYCEPHALOSAUR similar to STEGOCERAS. This Bipedal plant eater was found in Late Cretaceous deposits in Montana. There are large, elaborate HORN cores on the back of the skull of this dome headed dinosaur. These probably formed clusters of horns on either side of the domed skull roof. Only the back part of the skull has been found to this date

Classification: Pachycephalosauridae, Ornithopoda, or Pachycephalosauria, Ornithischia
