PNSO Prehistoric Animal Models series joined a new friend Jennie the Cetrosaurus on 5th, January, 2022. Let’s get to know it with some details.
Who is Jennie the Centrosaurus?
Jennie the Centrosaurus was a member of the ceratopsians. As a herbivore, it never intended to cower to fate. The huge head frill that stood above its neck and the sharp horns that towered on its frill and face made it a brave warrior.

The Horns of Jennie the Centrosaurus
Some Centrosaurus had their nasal horn pointing forward, others had ones pointing backward. It had no brow horn but only two hard protrusions. Its frill had many sharp horns, which accounted for its name.
