2012 25-CENT PREHISTORIC ANIMALS - PACHYRHINOSAURUS LAKUSTAI.Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai was first discovered in 1972 by a science teacher from Grande Prairie, Alberta named Al Lakusta. In what would prove a significant discovery, Lakusta located the dinosaurs in a rich bed of prehistoric bones at Pipestone Creek, Alberta. The bonebed is perched on the steep wall of a valley carved through bedrock, exposing strata of the Wapiti Formation.
The Pachyrhinosaurus lakustai herd that these researchers ultimately uncovered is a species of ceratopsid (or horned dinosaur) from North America’s Late Cretaceous period. These formidable beasts were up to 8 metres (26 feet) long and weighed up to four tons. The most distinctive feature of this amazing beast is its massive head, which is dominated by large bony structures called “bosses” above the nose and eyes (Pachyrhinosaurus means “thick-nosed lizard”) and a hefty frill of bone on the back of its skull festooned with small horns.Special features:

- Effect like photo-luminescence in a glow-in-the-dark technology.
