Celebrate #FossilFriday with Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis! 
Pachycephalosaurus, meaning “thick-headed reptile,” lived 66 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous Period and was the largest bone-headed dinosaur ever found, with 10 inches of bone crowning its rather small brain. This specimen was found in 1940 in Carter County, Montana. 
This fossil is located in the Museum’s Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs.
