Torosaurus by CollectA
Torosaurus is a dinosaur that is very similar to the Triceratops. The name Torosaurus is frequently translated as "bull lizard" from the Latin noun taurus or Spanish toro but much more likely is derived from the Greek verb toreo, "to pierce, perforate". The large frill of the Torosaurus has windows or holes in the bone and of course their horns are designed to pierce!
